Welcome homebrewers! Please see below for homebrew festival information.
SATURDAY MARCH 18TH, 2023 • Lafreniere Park
Space for 30 homebrew tents, with more upon approval.
Register early to reserve your spot!
SETUP / EQUIPMENT
Setup will be from 11:00AM to 1:00PM on March 18th. We will help guide spaces where tents will be setup. We will be providing each booth one 8 foot table and ice, and hopefully water. VIP and Early Entrance will happen at 2PM, full festival starts at 3:00PM and will end at 7:00PM.
Setup will be in a large arch around the island, see photo below.
Please provide any and all equipment you might need, not included to tent, additional tables, chairs, beer, dispensing equipment, decorations etc. There will be a best booth competition, so get creative!
If you do not have a tent, 10×10 tents will be available to rent for $250.
Each homebrewer and patron with a ticket will receive their own wristband and Fest Cup. There will be no tickets or digital scanning per beer this year. Similar to Brewstock Fest, your cup gets you unlimited sampling.
We will be announcing people’s choice best beer, best decorated booth, and BJCP competition winner, I assume on a main stage at the festival. We are currently gathering sponsors and prizes.
PACKUP / LOADOUT
The festival will end ~7:00PM. We ask that after the awards you help clear any trash and debris in your vicinity, pour your remaining beer, and pack it all up.
