The Lakewood Wine and Craft Beer Festival will be held in the 2-story parking deck behind the Bailey and INA Buildings in the heart of Downtown Lakewood. The main entrance to the festival will be on St. Charles, just south of Detroit Ave.
Entrance to the festival, 15 sample tickets (2 oz. wine samples and 4 oz. beer samples), access to the Wine and Beer School, musical performances and entertainment.
VIP ticket holders have the opportunity to enter the festival one hour before the general public, which provides VIP ticket holders with access to the VIP tent where there will be food, bathrooms, places to sit, wines and beers and a few extra surprises.
If the event does not sell out, just an FYI, we have sold out every year. Tickets may be available at the gate for $50. We recommend you buy them in advance online (print at home). There is a very good chance this festival will sell out prior to the event date.
Keep them in a safe place! Pin them to your shirt. If they are lost there will be no refund, no replacements. There are no refunds for any lost tickets. Again, no refunds or exchanges. If you cannot come, give your ticket to a friend or contact LakewoodAlive to transfer your ticket to another friend electronically.
