Additional Questions

1.) What is the fee to attend the event and what is included in the cost of the ticket? 2024 ticket pricing will be available in the spring. Our guests will enjoy the afternoon sampling of over 50 craft beers from local and statewide breweries. We also provide non-alcoholic beverages and snack items for our guests during your visit to the festival. 

2.) Where can I purchase tickets? Is there a fee for online ticket sales?

Tickets can be purchased online. There is a nominal fee for charging your tickets to your credit card. This defrays the processing fee that we are charged. We make an effort to keep ticket prices as low as we can! Tickets will come to your email from "Ticketleap" which is our online ticketing service. Please purchase your tickets directly through Dauphin County Parks & Recreation in person or via the links on this page.
