Oregon Brewers Parade
The Oregon Brewers Parade will kick off the Oregon Brewers Festival on Wednesday, July 24, starting at 11am. The parade isopen to all ages of the public, and no ticket or RSVP is required. More than 300 beer lovers will walk from Ecliptic Brewing at 825 N Cook St. to the grounds of the Oregon Brewers Festival at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Bring your walking shoes, as this will be the farthest distance we’ve ever traveled for the parade.
If you wish to get into the Oregon Brewers Festival gates with those from the brunch to watch the opening ceremony, you are required to have a wristband. We will have a security guard posted at the start of the parade from 10:30am to 11am. You will have to have your ID checked to get a wristband. Those with wristbands will enter the festival grounds at Oak Street. 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!

This year’s Grand Marshal will be the Unipiper, aka Brian Kidd, an avid homebrewer who has been a loyal supporter of the OBF for years. The Unipiper has been taking part in the Oregon Brewers Parade for a number of years; this year, he will lead the parade to the opening ceremonies at Waterfront Park, where he will also tap the official first keg.
