What Do I Get With My BCBWF Ticket?

Posted on

Good Afternoon Everyone!

The Festival is just over a week away & we are gearing up to provide you all with a fantastic time! Pre-sale tickets are still available for $30 or 2 for $50 BUT Pre-Sales end next Thursday, April 24th, so make sure to get yours soon!

You might be wondering, what is this whole Beer & Wine Fest thing and what do I get with my ticket purchase? Here’s some helpful information to keep in mind:

Upon entrance to the event, you will receive a 5oz tasting glass. This glass allows you to sample any & all beers/wines from the participating vendors. We have 8 Beer Vendors & 4 Wine Vendors. Each of them will be pouring a variety of beers/wines & will have between 5-10 varieties.

Our Presenting Sponsor, First Avenue National Bank, will be giving away souvenir Pint Glasses, that attendees can retrieve upon exiting the event. We also have an awesome southern, classic rock band R-Style, who will be playing throughout the entire festival.

On top of all of this, your Festival ticket gets you into the Feel Downtown Concert afterwards (at 7pm) for FREE! Country music star Brett Eldredge & Michael Ray will be performing.

All of the proceeds generated from this event are going directly to the Fort King Heritage Association for the Fort King National Historic Landmark project. Which you can read more about here:
