ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) The Deschutes Street Pub event is coming to Roanoke next week and organizers are looking for people to volunteer.

The event is the first chance for many people to try the beer. There will also be local artists and food.

Deschutes is partnering with several local non-profits, such as Roanoke Outside Foundation.

"We're really exited to see what ti means to the vibrancy of our community. I think that's the one thing it really means," said Pete Eshelman with the Roanoke Outside Foundation. "Attracting people to jobs and to come to the area, I think that's going to be the biggest thing to see how that plays out".

The event is happening next Saturday near Elmwood Park.
