Great Tucson Beer Festival
Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium
1 October 2016, 6-10 pm
The Great Tucson Beer Festival is THE major fundraiser for the Tucson Sun Sounds of Arizona affiliate and is one of the main reasons our Tucson doors are still open and our free radios are still on.
BAND SEARCH! Seven bands made the finals. We are now taking votes - The People's Choice - to find the top 3 bands. They will play at this year's beer festival. The finalists are: Blues Review Band, Shri Blues Band, Johnny Ain't Right, Machete Sauce, Mr. Skynyrd, Santa Pachita, Whiskey Kiss. Click here, or the G clef art to listen to samples of music by each band and then make your choice. Voting ends at midnight, Tucson time, on 22 May.
The event is a marvellous evening of beer tasting, (always over 200 to chose from!), nibbling on morsels of excellent food provided by local eateries plus entertainment to keep it all together, all included in your ticket price!
The 2016 Great Tucson Beer Festival will be held at the ball park - moving back to Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium, part of the Kino Sports Complex, located at 2500 E Ajo Way, Tucson. It's right next door to the University of Arizona Medical Center South Campus.
There are two tiers of ticketing - general admission (entry at 6 pm) and VIP (early entry at 4.30 pm). A VIP ticket offers extra benefits - additional food, a special souvenir mug, wine tastings and different beer tasting choices! Each tier of ticketing also has a designated driver option.
