Over 50 beers, nine bands, lots food trucks and lots of people! It's the original beer festival for Fort Collins, and it's happening June 24 and June 25, 2017!


The 28th annual Colorado Brewers Festival! Happening the weekend of June 24 and 25, 2017, at Washington Park in Downtown Fort Collins!

Both days the event opens at Noon, closing at 6 p.m. on Saturday, 5 p.m. on Sunday. There's no entry fee to get in, but you do have to purchase a 'tasting package' which gets you a tasting glass and 10 tickets. Four tickets will get you a full 16 oz. pour; one ticket will get you a 4 oz. pour.  Additional tickets can be bought at $1 each.

One thing to keep in mind is that all the breweries will be pouring only ONE of their beers except for the Fort Collins breweries- they'll get to pour two!.

There'll be lots of food trucks each day and nine bands (5 on Saturday and 4 on Sunday). It is a BREWERS festival, so there will be a 'Beer School' going on too, with classes about brewing beer!

Tasting packages will be $35 at the gate, $30 if you get them ahead of time online. The festival itself is FREE though, if you just want to attend the classes, check out the food trucks and enjoy the bands!
