Arvada On Tap – A Craft Beer and BBQ Fest is produced by the Arvada Festivals Commission (AFC). We’re a group of volunteers appointed by the City Council to organize and produce eight annual celebrations and to help other organizations produce celebrations.

For Arvada On Tap, we’re partnering with three service organizations to raise funds for their community projects. Members from Arvada-Jefferson Kiwanis Club, Arvada Sunrise Rotary and Arvada Vitality Alliance partner with the AFC to plan and produce this celebration.

  • City of Arvada roadside cleanup program
  • Arvada Santa House which provides free holiday gifts for families in Arvada
  • Week-long leadership training programs for junior and senior high students
