What is the brewfest?

Celebrating our eighth year, the Central Valley Brewfest will take place in May 2020 at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds. The event promises to be an amazing experience in taste, art, and music with over 150 brews to sample. Back by popular demand is the VIP wine sampling tent. Our premier ticket holders will have the opportunity to sample local wineries, local brews, and a freshly-baked baguette for $55. General Admission tickets available for $40 (in advance, $45 at the door) and designated driver tickets for $20.
