There are three sessions to choose from when purchasing tickets to the festival. A different headliner will play for each session.

Date Time Main Stage Band

Saturday, March 24 Noon to 4 p.m. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones 
Saturday, March 24 6-10 p.m.  Pepper

While beer and music are the biggest parts of the festival (duh), there's more to do than drink and dance. 

Attendees can toss hatchets, do yoga, play giant cornhole, watch cooking demonstrations, learn the science behind brewing beer, compete in a wing eating contest and shop numerous vendors.

There will be food for sale at the event, too.
