Founders Fest is our biggest and best party of the year, a street-side celebration of our two biggest loves: beer & music! The festival runs all day, from 3-11pm on Grandville Avenue, right in front of the brewery. This is an ages 21 and up event. General Admission Early Bird tickets go on-sale on-site in the Company Store and online via Ticketfly on Friday, April 22 at Noon EST for $25. 2016 Mug Club Members can purchase their $20 Mug Club ticket on-site in the Company Store or online via Ticketfly. A killer lineup of fantastic musical acts will perform all day on two stages, and for the first time in Founders Fest history, each act has previously appeared on our Taproom stage. A variety of local food vendors will line the street with their finest fare, and some of the area’s finest artisans will showcase their wares at Artist’s Row. Super Happy Funtime Entertainment will provide thrilling roving & sideshow acts, and The High Five Program will once again help assist our waste diversion, with the intention of making Founders Fest a completely green festival. Of course the beer will be flowing vigorously, as the taplist will showcase your Founders favorites, in addition to some Taproom one-offs & sought-after specialties. And for the first time, your paid admission includes 2 beer/beverage tickets! Can’t wait to party with y’all on Saturday, June 18, 2016!
