You may bring a bag to the festival and we do encourage you to bring your own water vessels. You may not bring outside meals or alcohol to the event. 

Can I wear a pretzel necklace?

Sure, small snacks are fine. We don’t want you getting hangry.

Can I bring my dog?

Service animals only, please. The block is just too crowded for pets today.

Can I bring my own water? Will you have water stations available?

We highly recommend you bring a water vessel. There will be several water stations around the block to keep you hydrated.

Can I leave the festival and get back in?

Once you have scanned your ticket and have a wristband, you may come and go from any entrance/exit at the festival, as often as you like. Please show your wristband to the security person as you enter, and please show your empty stout glass as you leave. No alcohol is allowed to leave the festival grounds.

Will you have non-stout beverages?

There will be a few non-stout beers, ciders, and wine on tap in the Upstairs Pizzeria, the Downstairs Pub, and the Lovell Taproom. These are served in your taster glass, 3oz at a time, and are paid for with tokens. * token for non-stout beer, * for cider, and *** for wine.

I bought a 3rd party ticket, do you need to match my ID to my ticket?

We do not match names on tickets to IDs. Tickets are completely transferrable. As long as the ticket will scan and you have a valid ID showing you are 21+, you may enter the festival. Please be careful with 3rd party purchases. Fort George & Eventbrite cannot guarantee their authenticity.

I can’t find my ticket? Where do I go to get a copy?

You should have received your purchased tickets via email from Eventbrite. Look for your confirmation along with the ticket .pdf in your email inbox or spam folder. You can either print the ticket or we can scan the barcode from your device at the ticket tent. If you still can’t find it, you may log into your Eventbrite account to get a copy. If you are still having issues, contact Eventbrite at 1-855-286-9808 or online at https://www.eventbrite.com/contact-us/. All tickets are handled through Eventbrite.

Will it be cold?

Yes. Be prepared for the weather. Most of the festival is outside.

Will it rain?

Let’s hope it rains stout.
