Now in the 22nd year of bringing craft beer to the Roanoke Valley, Microfestivus continues to strive to improve upon the past events. We know how important craft beer is to you, and we want to make your day most enjoyable! Party under the hot summer sun and use the downtown skyline for your shade! Too hot? Grab a VIP ticket and enjoy our two indoor VIP areas with free food and drinks! Don't miss out on our multiple DJ stations and of course make sure to grab some hot (and cold) food while you are at it! Microfestivus is a 21 and over event, and our main purpose is to raise money to donate to culture and the arts. Please drink responsibly!
