First off, a great attitude and predisposition for having a really friendly, good time! We’ve worked extremely hard for many months to make this festival amazing, and we’ve been anticipating it now for three years! We want everyone to have a great time, so no negative Nellies! Oh, and folding chairs, blankets, etc. You can bring those. And your friendly, leashed dogs. Coolers, outside beverages, food and your awesome friends that didn’t want to buy a ticket are not permitted. Sorry. 😔
Sort of. They will be available day of, but we ask that you purchase them before you come or on your phone from BeerMericaOrlando.com before you approach the gate. We will not be doing transactions at the door. This helps us keep the lines moving and getting attendees like you into the festival and having a good time as quickly as possible.
Pick up your sample cup and event guide at the entrance as you enter the festival. Please do not take more than one. This year there is only one entrance, located at the North end of the park, near the intersection of Orange Avenue and Virginia Drive.
We cannot offer refunds, however tickets are fully transferable and the name on the ticket does not matter as long as the ticket has not been scanned.
Patriotic attire is encouraged. The more outrageous, the better! We also encourage you to come comfy, and be prepared for Orlando weather!
No one under the age of 21 is permitted inside of the event. There will be no exceptions, and security will be ID'ing ticket holders as they come into the event. Not even babies! This is in accordance with laws and insurance policies that cover this event.
Food trucks and food vendors will be set up on-site for guests to purchase food.
There will be water available at water tents throughout.
Yes, designated drivers are allowed to enter at 2 PM and allowed in the VIP area as long as they are accompanied by a VIP.
Pick up VIP lanyards at the entrance.
Your VIP t-shirt will be available for pickup in the VIP Zone. T-shirt sizes are available on a first come first serve basis. Your VIP glass will be available in the tent you entered through, upon your exit. (Glasses are not allowed in the park during the festival.)
The event goes on rain or shine. Only dangerous weather can stop us! Come prepared to embrace the Florida weather. Umbrellas are permitted, ponchos encouraged!
Yes, friendly, leashed dogs are welcomed! It just wouldn’t be right for you to spend this much time on a Saturday in such a beautiful park and leave the fur-babies at home, now would it?
No re-entry. Once you leave the festival, you have left for good, and we hope to see you at our next event (Tacos and Tequila!)
