The latest event in Strange Fellows Brewing’s ongoing Strange Days celebrations promises to be a fun night full of food, foolishness and fine beer.

The East Van brewery is hosting its annual Feast of Fools this Saturday, April 6, so prepare to get ridiculous.

Irreverent behavior, jokes and silly costumes are encouraged, and Joel the Magician will be on hand to demonstrate that things are not always what they seem. Present a joke and be rewarded!

According to the brewery, Feast of Fools is inspired by the Fool’s Day, which since the days of Chaucer, has played an important role to society’s health by allowing folks to let off a little steam. Medieval clerics celebrated the Fool’s Feast as an outlet for their innate foolishness, lest they be too silly year-round.

The feast includes a barbecue brisket sandwich with mac and cheese and dessert. Tickets are $16 in advance or $18 at the door and include dinner and a beer. The festivities get underway at 4pm and carry on until 11pm. For more info and tickets, visit
