Every year in August, Durango holds its annual San Juan Brewfest, one of the biggest and grandest beer tasting festivals in the southwest. A two-day festival full of music, beer, and food, guests will have a chance to sample unlimited tastings from up to 35 breweries. Different than other years, each day of the festival is meant for specific ticket holders.
While both days include unlimited tastings, Friday is a more intimate event for VIP ticket holders. Coming with a souvenir tasting glass, meal, and San Juan Brewfest merchandise, lines on Friday will be minimal to non-existent since there are only 500 tickets available. Saturday is general admissions day and includes a free souvenir cup, however, food must be purchased.
Drawing over 1,400 attendees in 2021, visitors can expect longer lines on the second day of the festival. Benefitting the United Way of Southwest, Colorado, this year’s San Juan Brewfest will be held from Friday to Saturday, August 26th – 27th, 2022 at Buckley Park in downtown Durango. Only for those 21+, this festival is a great way to spend your Labor Day Weekend!
