Phat Fish brewery in Dickinson will be hosting a Fourth of July bash this summer with everyone welcome to join in on the fun.

The event will take place all day on the 3rd and 4th with live music all day both days and a free concert in the parking lot behind the brewery each night.

“Everything is free to the public,” Kelli Scharf co-owner with her husband Tony said. “We will have stuff for kids and we are family friendly. People can sit on the patio and listen to music.”

Phat Fish will have food and drink specials, and the entertainment for kids will be a bouncy house.

Scharf is excited that the holiday lands on a Saturday this year giving people more freedom to do things since it is a weekend.

Nathan Dean and the Damn Band who came last year after they opened will be the headline of the weekend.

Scharf thinks that it will almost be like a parking lot party, but it will be a family friendly one.

She also says that Phat Fish is the perfect place to host an event like this during times of uncertainty because of how much space they have available for use.

“It is great for the community. With everything with COVID, we have such a large space that we feel we can put this event on and have people still abide by social guidelines,” she said. “People can feel comfortable that they won’t be shoved in a small little area. We have three and a half acres of land. It allows people to roam, and kids have plenty of space to play.”

Phat Fish’s goal for the event is to bring the community together and for everyone to be safe and enjoy themselves.

They have been having live music every weekend since they opened back up post shut down, and the Fourth of July weekend will be the biggest one yet.

Ice cream along with kids games will be served and an incentive to get parents to bring their kids for a good time.

Being on Villard, the spot is also perfect to watch the parade during the day.

“This is a really cool place to come out and hang out all day. We are right on Villard, and people will be able to see the parade if they want,” she said. “We encourage everyone to bring their lawn chairs and get together and have a good time with everyone that has been going on.”
