Bruegala 2020: Cancelled 2020-05-26T15:48:09-05:00

The Bloomington-Normal Jaycees must unfortunately announce the cancelation of Bruegala 2020.

Due to the ongoing concerns about the spread of the novel coronavirus, we have made this decision to protect the health and well being of the Bruegala guests, vendors, and our community. Over the last twenty years Bruegala has raised thousands of dollars to help organizations in our community and the Jaycees are actively discussing ways we can help Central Illinois through these uncertain times. Our board has determined there is no clear path to safely set a new date for 2020. We hope you join us, to celebrate twenty one years of Bruegala, together in 2021!


Celebrating good drinks, good music & good times for charity.

Bruegalal XX will feature 50 Midwestern breweries!
