WILL TICKETS BE AVAILABLE AT THE FRONT GATE?

DO YOU NEED ANY HELP?
This entire event is organized and produced by volunteers. We love great volunteers who are passionate about beer and community. Please send us an email if you would like to volunteer.
CAN I BE A VENDOR AT THE FESTIVAL?
Due to space limitations and our focus on the hard working brewers from our region, we minimize the number of vendors at the event. Our limited spots are already filled with local vendors.
WHY DO YOU PRODUCE THIS FESTIVAL?
All profits from Beerfest go to the Cooper-Young Community Association. See our mission statement for more details.
