Formerly the Evergreen Music Festival, Hops Drops is a family-friendly event boasting numerous stages for live performances, food vendors, kids’ activities, and plenty of craft beer from some of Colorado’s most notable breweries. With 10% of ticket sales donated to the Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen, you can enjoy every drink knowing it’s for a cause.
This year’s Hop Drops will take place on TBD for 2023 at Buchanan Park. Those hoping to attend the festival can choose between GA, GA + Beer Tasting, and VIP tickets. While general admission only provides entrance to the concert, the GA + Beer Tasting includes unlimited tastings at the Beerfest from 12 pm to 4 pm and a souvenir glass.
The VIP pass comes with access to a premier viewing area, a private bar, a photo booth, and private restrooms as well as free food, drinks, and gifts. Festival headliners are also yet to be announced, but past acts include Rapidgrass, Heavy Diamond Ring, The Wrecklunds, Justus and The Limits, Extra Gold, Jesh Yancey & The High Hopes, YepOK, and Drew Dvorchak and Friends.
