Yes. Designated drivers will be allowed in for free at the gate. However, designated drivers must be 21 or over AND have a valid photo ID to enter the festival - no exceptions.
WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
We strongly encourage you to take a taxi, Uber or Lyft. We do not have dedicated parking for this event. Please use street parking in the surrounding blocks, but be considerate of our neighbors and local businesses. Please don’t block driveways, park illegally or park in business lots.
WILL THERE BE FOOD?
We will have Sunrise, Central BBQ, and New Wing Order on site selling food. Although the vendors will probably accept credit cards, bring cash to be safe.
CAN I BRING IN OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINK?
IS RE-ENTRY ALLOWED?
WILL TICKETS BE AVAILABLE AT THE FRONT GATE?
It is highly unlikely that tickets will be available at the front gate. This event sells out in advance every year.
DO YOU NEED ANY HELP? CAN I VOLUNTEER?
All volunteer spots for 2019 are filled. To get on the list for 2020, please send us an email, and we’ll add you to our contact list.
CAN I BE A VENDOR AT THE FESTIVAL?
The only space we have available for vendors are for food vendors, and those spots have been filled. We do not accept any sort of other vendor at all, both because the space is small and in order to focus on the beer.
WHY DO YOU PRODUCE THIS FESTIVAL?
All profits from Beerfest go to the Cooper-Young Community Association. See our mission statement for more details.
