Could the event sell out?
It is extremely likely that VIP will sell out as we have limited space, even with the addition of our second VIP location. It is possible that we could sell out our general admission, but we do have a very large footprint so this isn’t highly likely. That being said, take advantage of the “early bird” pricing and save $10 off your GA ticket and $45 off of your VIP ticket!! Limited time only!
What items are prohibited?
No pop up tents or coolers
Large bags are discouraged and must be searched
Outside alcohol
This list is only a small sampling and our policies are subject to change without notice
Will there be an ATM?
There are numerous ATM’s within our footprint should you need cash
Why Aren't There Designated Driver tickets?
We are no longer charging for designated driver tickets to the general admission portion of the festival. You must have a wristband to consume any alcohol at the event, and anyone caught disobeying this will be asked to leave and may face future bans from Microfestivus. At this time, due to abuse of the tickets in prior years, we are not going to be offering access to VIP for anyone other than paid ticket holders. This year’s enhanced VIP offers a great many benefits, even for those non drinkers (VIP pre party with food Friday night, two food options on Saturday, air conditioning, private bathrooms, souvenirs, etc.). In addition, our costs are simply so high in VIP that we as a charity need to sell these tickets for maximum value to ensure that we generate profits for charity.
What kinds of beers will you have?
We will have a full assortment of beers from ciders and lagers to IPA’s, Double IPA’s, Stouts, Sours and more! We also make efforts to have special limited release beers available at a designated tent
Do I have to bring ID?
Microfestivus is a 21+ event. In order to receive your beer tasting glass and wristband you will need to show a valid government ID
What happens if it rains?
Microfestivus is a rain or shine event, so if it looks like it is going to rain, make sure to bring an umbrella/poncho and plan to have a sloppy good time!
Can I bring a pet?
Pets are not suggested, but are allowed. If you do bring your pet, please make sure to keep it hydrated and to pick up any and all “messes”.
Where should I park?
There will be two way traffic from 2nd Street onto Church to allow for access to the parking garage. There is also ample street and garage parking on the eastern side of the footprint off of Jefferson.
What is the refund policy?
There are no refunds available.

The Breweries

Check out the breweries and the beers that will be in attendance this year!
We work hard to make sure that we have a good selection of beers and breweries both locally as well as from around the country. This year we are excited as we have about 10 brand new breweries that haven’t been before! We will post a full beer list closer to the festival once the breweries finalize their entries.
