Commonly Asked Question

Will tickets be available at the door?

Yes, tickets will be available for purchase at the gate.

(But we suggest purchasing tickets prior to event as ticket prices rise as the event gets closer.)

Designated Driver – $10 only available at the door

I can no longer attend the fest can I get a refund?

All ticket sales are final – no refunds or exchanges. You can give them to a friend as long as they are 21 or older with a valid state ID

Can I bring my kids?

Sorry, this party is for adults only. We’ll card at the door and will only admit those who are 21 and over, and can prove it with a valid form of government issued identification.

Can I purchase a Designated Driver ticket for someone who is under 21?

Sorry, no. See above.

Can I bring my dog?

We love dogs but unfortunately no dogs are allowed into the fest. Plus, dogs shouldn’t drink beer.

Can I bring food and drinks?

Unfortunately, no. We’ll provide water for drinking and rinsing your glasses and we have a ton of tasty food options. We’ll make an exception for pretzel necklaces. We like those.

Can I bring my own chair?

Sure, I guess.

Will food be available?

Yes. Some of Chicago’s favorite food trucks will be in attendance. CLICK HERE to learn more.

Where can I park?

Don’t drive. Take an Uber or a Lyft or a cab or have a friend drop you off or ride the bus.  If you drive there will be parking available around the downtown area.

Why are there drink tickets?

Because there are laws and we like to keep in compliance with them. It’s complicated, and you can read all about it HERE.  Ticket holders will receive 20 drink tickets when they arrive. Each drink ticket can be exchanged for a 3 oz sample and additional tickets will be available for $0.50.

Tickets for Starved Rock Country Brew Fest go on sale February 13th at 10am!
