Interested in volunteering?

We rely on hundreds of people to help run the Made in the Shade Beer Tasting Festival, that support Sun Sounds of Arizona in our effort to provide Arizona's blind and visually impaired people with access to current information. We have plenty of volunteer opportunities available - from set up prior to the event, to tear down and clean up after the last brewer has gone home.






There is ample free parking at the PEPSI AMPHITHEATER.

Home of Arizona's Premier Beer Tasting Festivals


Welcome to the home of the three largest, longest running beer tasting festivals in the American Southwest: the Spring celebration at Sloan Park in Mesa, the cool, shady pines of Flagstaff, and the baseball stadium atmosphere of Tucson - each a destination for true beer enthusiasts everywhere.


Although each of the beer festivals is distinctive in its own right each event offers a comprehensive brew tasting experience and great Arizona weather! Many local breweries come to each city with seasonal recipes and breweries from all over the southwest are showcased alongside of national and international varieties giving you the advantage of sampling the widest variety of beers. This means that you will discover new beers as well as enjoy many of your favorite libations and no matter which time of year you attend – spring, summer or fall you can enjoy craft beers from microbreweries and brewpubs, music, entertainment, and an assortment of food.


Each of the beer tasting festivals is a locally-organized fund raising event for Sun Sounds of Arizona. Every penny of the proceeds benefits the local reading and information service for people who are blind or otherwise print-disabled, Sun Sounds of Arizona. For this reason all ticket sales are final and non-refundable.


Please note:
Attendees must be 21 or older to attend.
Events are held rain or shine, no rain checks.
No children or animals (except service dogs) allowed in the festival area.
Absolutely no exceptions!
