WAS PRESENTED BY
Our thanks to everyone who attended, and also those who planned, organized and helped put on the 30th Great Tucson Beer Festival. Your continued support of our non profit and the work we do in Tucson for the visually disabled is much appreciated. Thank you!
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, (so many different beers 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 was held at the soccer field, part of the Kino Sports North Complex, located at 2817 E Ajo Way, Tucson. Click here for a map of the event. 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 including additional food, beer and wine samplings, plus festival souvenirs.
