This year's Burning River Fest will take place on July 26 and 27 from 6-11PM at the historic Coast Guard Station on Whiskey Island. Tickets are on sale now at burningriverfoundation.org.
Burning River Fest is an annual celebration of water. Why celebrate water? See that beer in your hand? Yeah, the other one that’s not resting on a mouse or a touchpad. That’s why we celebrate water, friend.
What's happening at this year's Burning River Fest? Here are some more numbers for you:
Here are some more numbers to wrap your head around:
We love water so much, that we helped establish the Burning River Foundation, a non-profit organization working to improve, maintain, and celebrate our regional freshwater resources. Since 2007, the Foundation has awarded over $320,000 to local non-profit organizations for their work on water projects. The Foundation has planned several environmentally-focused events for this year's Fest, including the second annual Corporate Boat Float, and a special presentation of the Foundation's Outstanding Environmental Leader Award.
And finally, the “Good Beer” portion of the equation. We’ll offer a variety of our award-winning lagers and ales, including a fan-favorite: Christmas Ale. Every summer we brew a fresh batch of Christmas Ale exclusively for Burning River Fest. It’s the true “Christmas in July” event that you won’t want to miss.
Visit burningriverfoundation.org to purchase your one-day, weekend, and VIP passes, listen to music by this year’s bands and musicians, and plan your weekend.
Now, we’ve talked a lot about how we love water, but we love our fans too. So leave a comment on this blog, telling us why you love water. We’ll pick our favorite answer and send that person a pair of weekend passes* to Burning River Fest. Good Cheer. Good Cause. Good Beer. That’s what the Fest is all about!
Thank you to all of Burning River Fest's generous sponsors!
*Passes are non-transferable, and will be held at Will-Call. Burning River Fest will occur, rain or shine. All attendees MUST present valid identification if they plan to consume alcohol at Burning River Fest. Each pass admits one (1) attendee to the Fest.
