Let me just start by saying that we love our beer festivals – and love what we have built over the years. But, like Andy Dufresne said in Shawshank Redemption, you need to, “Get busy living, or get busy dying.” Now, we’re pretty sure he wasn’t referring to beer festivals when he said that, but the gist is the same.
For our festivals, it’s important that we’re always seeking out new ways to improve the experience for everyone – whether they are attending or working there. As we head into our 19th year, we don’t think we’ve seen as many exciting changes as the ones we have in store for you in 2024. Without further ado, let’s dive into what’s brewing this year — from cost-effective packages to an enhanced VIP experience.
Full Experience Packages
You asked, and we heard you! It seems that we’re all looking for ways to simplify our lives lately, and one of the things we have implemented this year is a range of ticket package options that aim to do just that. Most notably, we’ve come up with an option that offers you the full Beerfest experience – for the best price. Rather than splitting up your ticket transactions, tokens, and more, we’re providing an option that encapsulates the entire thing.
These packages include entry to the event, $40 in sample tokens, and after-party tickets (more on that later!). Packages will be available for both General admission (GA) and VIP, and if you’re one of those people who prefers to just buy your tokens when you arrive, we still have a basic GA ticket option too.
VIPs get more VIP Treatment
We’ve made a bunch of moves to make the VIP Beerfest experience even better. We have improved VIP lounges, including adding VIP washroom capacity. VIP attendees will also be able to utilise an improved VIP entrance for faster, easier entry. Lastly, we’ve made the Cooking with Beer and Let’s Meet For A Beer Seminars only available to VIPs – enhancing your exclusive Beerfest experience.
Enter Here, or Here, or Here!
We know that everyone the least favourite part of attending any festival or event is waiting in line, so we’re taking steps to improve your experience and ditch the wait. One of the added benefits of having multiple ticket package options is the ability us to offer multiple entrances. We will now have separate entrances for GA, GA+, and VIP ticket holders – so everyone will get into the event faster than ever before!
What comes before Part B? Part A! We are absolutely thrilled to unveil a long-awaited addition to our Calgary and Edmonton festivals – the ultimate Beerfest After Party! After years of your requests, we’ve brewed up an after-party experience that promises to keep the fun going well into the night. Get ready for fantastic music, captivating entertainment, an array of premium beverages, and a whole host of delightful surprises. It’s an after-party that stands shoulder to shoulder with the world’s most renowned beer festivals, and we can’t wait to share this unforgettable experience with you.
Get ready for an incredible 2024 as we take our Beerfests to the next level! From full experience packages to VIP treatment, multiple entrances, and the long-awaited Beerfest After Party, it’s going to be a year to remember.
