We will be opening the gates right at noon! As is the case with all festivals, there’s a few steps like bag & ID check, getting your super cool wristband and WVBF sampling mug. All Access and Weekender Pass holders get express entry!
We will be doing last call at 4:30pm and last pour at 4:45pm. From there, keep the good times rolling by visiting our local partner venues and checking out the Best in Fest after party!
Both are accepted but cash is king and will definitely make things faster for you! Some breweries will be selling merchandise, food vendors may vary, token sales will be cash and credit card. ATM’s will also be available on site.
Tokens are available in 5- and 10-packs for $8.75 and $17.50 respectively.
You heard right! We will have a team of Beer Fairies on site selling beer tokens. Heads up: these fairies only deal in cash.
There will be a number of local food vendors cooking up some delicious eats for you all day long. Check out our Food + Music page for the most up-to-date information!
Think of the festival site as a restaurant. We can’t have any outside food on site either. Our food vendors’ creations are delicious and pair perfectly with beer!
As much as we love all animals, we cannot allow any pets on site unless they are registered service animals.
Congratulations! What an exciting time! While we are so happy for you we cannot jeopardize our license, regardless of cuteness. Absolutely no minors (under the age of 19) are permitted within the grounds.
Due to our license and capacity restrictions, there will be no re-entry once you have left site. There will be signs and security to remind you, so bring whatever you need with you!
We will have a designated area for smoking. There is to be no smoking outside of this area and that includes e-cigarettes and vaping. We are lucky enough to breathe in clean mountain air!
Absolutely! We’ve got shuttles from Squamish and North Vancouver plus tips on where to stay, check out our Get Here + Stay page!
