Yes – grab a cold one and enjoy the SITP Festival in style.  Here’s what you need to know about the beer this year.

  • No BYOB. Please respect that this is a free festival made possible in part by the beer sales. No alcoholic beverages are allowed to be brought into the park. Supporting the sales provides a lineup like we have this year!

  • 4 beer stands in the park:  The park will be totally fenced in with 3 entrances, so there will not be fenced in Beer Gardens. Beer will be able to be consumed throughout the park (excluding the Kid’s Zone and the family friendly area). There will be 4 beer stations available to purchase adult beverages.  These beverage stations will be named for their location,  Earle’s (Main trailer near water tower) Abe’s (Near Abe’s stage),  Bob’s (North side of bandshell), and Pete’s (South side of bandshell).
