The Taste of Freedom Wine and Brew Fest is for military members, veterans and their supporters.
The event will take place at the Marion VFW on Saturday, November 9 from noon to 4 p.m.
Attendees will be able to try around 35 samples of beer and wine from several different breweries and distributors while listening to live music and a dj.
Some of those include Excel Brewing Company and Honker Hill winery.
There will also be food to purchase such as handmade soft pretzels and bratwurst, festival t-shirts and auction prizes.
Organizers hope to raise at least $5,000 from the event.
All money raised will go toward the Marion VFW relief fund which helps veterans with financial expenses such gas money, medical and utility bills.
Tickets are $20 at the Marion VFW until 9 p.m. on Friday, November 8 and $25 at the door on Saturday.
