Following the Brewers Brunch on Thursday, July 26, is the Brewers Parade, which starts at 11:30am and is open to all ages. You do NOT need a ticket to walk in the parade. More than 600 beer lovers will walk from the site of the Oregon Brewers Brunch to the grounds of the Oregon Brewers Festival at Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
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 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. We will also be selling tokens and extra mugs at the doors to the brunch (cash only), so if you want to avoid the token/mug line at the fest, we’ve got you covered.
More information about the 2018 Oregon Brewers Parade will be posted in the spring.
