We are very HOPpy to announce that the first annual Orleans Craft Beer Festival will take place outdoors at Centrum Plaza in June 2017!
The Orleans Craft Beer Festival will bring together craft breweries, local food artisans and some fantastic music to the east end of the city!
Doesn’t matter if you’re a beer aficionado with a great knowledge of the suds, a seasonal beer drinker, or someone who is new to the craft beer scene, you’ll be sure to have a great time at the Orleans Craft Beer Festival! Craft beer not your thing? Don't worry, we have a wine booth too!
This outdoor festival goes off rain or shine! ...we have a HUGE BEER tent! All of the best local taps and apps under the big tent! Good old fashioned east end street party! That's right...they've closed the street for us!
So join us for what is undoubtedly going to be a can’t miss event!

I have my ticket, but I forgot my wallet at home. Do I really need my ID?
Yes, Joe Smith...if that's your real name...you need ID to get into the event grounds! No exceptions!
What does my event ticket get me?
Besides the respect and envy of your family and friends, your ticket gives you access to a variety of craft breweries’ finest beer, live music, and even if you might not remember everything by the end of the night, you get the opportunity to say "I was at the first ever craft beer festival in Orleans!"
How much will beer and food tokens cost?
There will be tokens available for purchase at a few areas on the festival grounds. Each token is $1. Samples will range in price depending on what is being served. We will provide you with a product and price list closer to the festival date. Please bring cash if possible to ensure lines continue to move along as quickly as they can.
Is there parking available?
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. There will also be a designated drop off and pick up area.
How do I get home?
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, taxi, or through a designated driver. If you need help at the end of the night, please check in with one of volunteers and we would be happy to help you find a safe way home.
Should I expect a line up?
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!
So, my partner just went out of town and I have the kids for the day. Will you have a jumpy castle they can use at the event while I'm walking the ground?
Well, for our Friday and Saturday sessions, the answer is NO.
However, we have decided to have our Sunday session to be family friendly and we just might have a bouncy castle then!
Are pets allowed?
No. Unless it's a service dog, we would ask that you plese keep your pets at home.
Can I bring in things like glasses, coolers, chairs, or umbrellas?
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.
Can I bring my own alcohol or food to the festival?
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.
What if it rains? Do you have a rain date?
No rain date needed. We have you covered! Literally...we're setting up a BIG tent...rain just makes our event a little cozier!
I usually get hungry when I have a few beers...where can I get food?
Once again. We are thinking ahead. We will have some awesome food vendors serving up great eats!
Can I leave the festival and come back in?
You will receive a wristband upon entry and you may come and go as you wish, but will have to show your wristband upon re-entry. You will, however, have to wait in line if there is one. Please do not remove you wristband once inside the festival.
I'm having such a good time...can we stay after last call?
Um. No. We have to respect bylaw if we want to continue to make this an annual event.
Is there an ATM on-site/nearby?
Yes, you will have access to an ATM machine.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
You can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What's the refund policy?
Sorry folks, no refunds!
