Ventura Beer Fest 2014

The annual California Beer Festival took place at Mission Park in Ventura, California with over 140 craft beers on tap, food trucks and live music on September 20th and 21st.

Festivalgoers who purchased VIP tickets were able to receive an early pour from the beer stands while general admission guests were only able to enter the park. The park was packed by 1:00 p.m. and the scene ignited with a celebratory atmosphere as the beer started flowing and the music started playing. Live music by Rey Fresco, Dr. M, and Petty Theft: the ultimate Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers tribute band played throughout the day.

Sunday was more of a family oriented day where people of all ages could participate and bring their chairs and blankets to enjoy the festival. The smell of BBQ wafted through the air, blending with blues music from Jonathon Boogie Long, Garey Hoey, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds and many other artists.
