The Orléans Craft Beer Festival has quickly become the can’t miss event of the season! With a great combination of outstanding craft beers, smooth wines and spirits, delicious food, and excellent live entertainment, we have something for everyone!
This popular outdoor festival goes off rain or shine! We’ve got you covered with large tents that span most of the festival grounds including the beer gardens and eating area! All of the best local taps and apps under the big tent! A good old fashioned east end street party! That’s right…they’ve closed the street for us!
Besides the respect and envy of your family and friends, it gets you through the gates to the best party in the east end of the city! Once through the gates, you will get access to a variety of awesome craft breweries' finest beer, fantastic food, great live music, and entertainment! And with a free token at the gate, your first drink is on us!
There will be tokens available for purchase immediately when you enter the festival grounds. Each token is $2. We have both debit and ATM machines available but we recommend you bring cash to purchase your tokens to keep the lines moving quickly.
Beer vendors will have $2 (4oz), $4 (8oz), and $6 (14oz) options available. Food vendors will also have a number of dishes available a different price/token points.
We are serving alcohol and therefore, keep the kids at home for everyone sake. No one under the age of 19 will be allowed access to the festival.
Gates close at 9:30 pm sharp! There will be no free admission at any time and gates close at 9:30 pm.
You will receive a wristband upon entry and you may come and go as you wish and you must show your wristband upon re-entry. You will, however, have to wait in line if there is one. Do not remove your wristband once inside the festival.
Yes, Joe Smith... if that's your real name... you will need government-issued photo ID to get into the event grounds! No exceptions!
Yes, we can accept payments by debit and will also have an ATM machine on-site.
Yes, there is. Parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. And if you don't have a designated driver, it's exactly where your car should stay until the next morning. Parked. Period. Actually, we would prefer if you took a cab, Uber, Lyft, bus, or simply be dropped off!
You can refund your ticket online up to seven days prior to the festival.

Like we've said before if you've been drinking, you definitely shouldn't be driving. There are several options available, including public transit, UBER, Lyft, taxi, or through a designated driver. If you need help at the end of the night, please check in with one of the volunteers and we would be happy to help you find a safe way home.
Unless it’s a service dog, we would please ask that you keep your pets at home. Thanks!

All good things come to those who wait...the saying applies for great craft beer! We've done our best to ensure we have a good ratio of beer booths to beer drinkers!
No. Please don't try to bring in items like this. We give you a glass at the door. The beer is served cold. If you think your 4-ounce sample is going to get warm before you down it...well maybe this isn't really the right event for you. Chairs and umbrellas...well, we have a big tent and some picnic tables! Once again, we're really taking all of the thinking out of the equation here.
C'mon... you really can't be asking this question, can you? Apart from the fact that it's illegal, we are serving the best beer and food that our city offers. And you want to bring in your own? Nope. Nada. No way. If you try and you get caught, you will be asked to leave immediately. While the rest of the people having fun are yelling shame in unison. And trying to come back disguised with a mustache won't work Bobby Valentine.
No rain date needed. We have you covered! Literally! We will have several massive tents! Enough room for everybody!
The festival closes each night at 11:00 pm. Last call will be at 10:30 pm.
Um. No. We have to respect bylaw if we want to continue to make this an annual event.
We have plenty of porta-potties set up onsite.
Yes, we will have wine, spirits and a variety of non-alcoholic options!
