Some brew fests turn into rowdy affairs that you wouldn’t necessarily bring your family to. The Vail Valley Brew Fest is different. Set at the Avon Performance Pavilion in Nottingham Park in Avon, Colorado, this summer event is family friendly and even has a designated Family Zone!
Enjoy tasting over 60 craft brews from 30 breweries while you listen to great live music at this beautiful lakeside outdoor venue. This event has been cancelled for 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organizers hope to hold this event again in 2021.
The event usually takes place on the last weekend in June, and you can be prepared for hours of fun, starting off with an (optional) 5K run, followed by plenty of great beer and live music. The casual, relaxed atmosphere of the brew fest allows you to unwind and enjoy the experience.
