Oregon Brewers Parade
The Oregon Brewers Parade will kick off the Oregon Brewers Festival on Wednesday, July 22. The parade is open to all ages of the public, and no ticket or RSVP is required. Parade goers walk from the site of the Oregon Brewers Brunch, which changes each year, to the grounds of the Oregon Brewers Festival at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. The location will be announced in spring of 2020.
Bikes are allowed in the parade, as are small pull carts; nothing motorized is allowed.
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 have a security guard posted at the start of the parade who can check your ID and provide you with a wristband. Those with wristbands will enter the festival grounds by lifting up their arm to show their wristband; those without a wristband will have to get in line and have their ID checked at any of the other three OBF entrances. We also sell 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!
