Event Overview

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.


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 live music provided by Machete Sauce, Santa Pachita and Mr Skynyrd as well as a variety of entertainment to keep it all together, all included in your ticket price!


The 30th Annual Great Tucson Beer Festival will be held at the soccer field, part of the Kino Sports Complex, located at 2500 E Ajo Way, Tucson. It's close to the Banner-University 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 provided by Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment, a special souvenir mug, wine tastings and different beer tasting choices! Each tier of ticketing also has a designated driver option. The Radisson Hotel, 4550 S Palo Verde, Tucson is our host hotel and is offering a room sale on their already special rates July 15-31, (click here for additional host hotel information). Yellow Cab is our official taxi service.
