Tickets are SOLD OUT for the 9th annual Oregon Brewers Brunch, hosted by Lompoc Brewing.
Everyone is welcome to join in the parade. The Oregon Brewers Parade will start at 11:30am on July 22. More than 500 beer lovers will walk from Metalcraft Fabrication at 723 N Tillamook St, cross the Steel Bridge over the Willamette River, and end up on the grounds of the Oregon Brewers Festival at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. This year's Grand Marshals are Kurt and Rob Widmer, the founders of Widmer Brothers Brewing Co, who were also part of the original Oregon Brewers Festival committee.
Here is the exact route: Tillamook to Southbound Interstate Ave; Interstate Ave to NE Oregon; West across the Steel Bridge using the top deck, eastbound vehicle; Exit ramp (wrong way) to Naito and NW Davis; Immediate right turn onto NW Davis, crossing all lanes of Naito (here is where the Rogue group will meet up with us); Continue Westbound on Davis up to NW 3rd; Southbound on NW 3rd to SW Pine; Eastbound on SW Pine back to Naito and cross into the Festival. This is one of our longest routes ever, at just under two miles. If you don't think you can make the walk, we encourage you to reserve a PDX Pedicab in advance. We'll also be accompanied by the funky sounds of the Transcendental Brass Band
If you wish to get into the Oregon Brewers Festival gates with those from the brunch to watch the opening ceremonies, you are required to have a wristband. We will have a security guard posted at the start of the parade at 723 N Tillamook St from 11 to 11:30am. You will have to have your ID checked to get a wristband. Those with wristbands will enter the festival grounds at Pine Street Esplanade and Naito Parkway. Those without a wristband will have to get in line and have their ID checked at any of the other three OBF entrances. Minors with parent are welcome in the parade, and will not need a wristband.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers!
