The focus of the Good Beer Festival is of course, craft beer, but we're also about good times! Take part in some of our fun activities to enhance your festival experience. Below are the activities featured in 2016.

Carni Beer Games

For only $5, get four opportunities to play our carnival-inspired games with a chance to pick up Good Beer Festival merchandise or swag from the breweries featured in the Local Beer Garden.
Games include Hot Shot, Ring Toss and Around The World.
No one leaves empty-handed, though! Players will receive a voucher for a commemorative Good Beer Festival pint glass, which can be redeemed when leaving the festival. (While supplies last.) Sorry, no pint glasses allowed inside the gates.

The Playground

These grown-up games are available for free play during the festival.

Sports Zone

On Sunday, watch the Ravens vs. Redskins game on the big screen right in the middle of the Good Beer Festival.
First 100 fans through the gate on Sunday sporting their team's jersey will receive a free Good Beer Festival souvenir!

Taster's Choice Award

Vote for your favorite brewery in the Local Beer Garden. Attendees with tasting tickets will receive a bottle cap when they walk in. After tasting beers from the 12 local breweries in the Local Beer Garden, put your bottle cap in the mason jar representing your favorite brewery to cast your vote. Mason jars will be out all day on Saturday and until 3:30 p.m. Sunday so that votes can be counted. The winner will be announced at the festival Sunday.

Pemberton Hall Tours

Pemberton Hall was built on the Wicomico River near Salisbury in 1741 by Isaac Handy, one of the city's founders. The Hall is the only original 18th century house open to the public on the lower Eastern Shore. Free tours will be available during the festival.
