SALISBURY, MD – Wicomico County’s Good Beer Festival returns to Pemberton Park in Salisbury on Friday-Saturday, Oct. 8-9.
The festival features unlimited sampling from over 30 breweries. This year’s menu has been expanded to include craft beer, domestics, ciders and seltzers.
“Considering seltzers have become exponentially more popular over the past couple years, it’s time for them to make an appearance at the festival,” said Recreation Superintendent James Simmons. “We’ve also added ciders and domestics to the lineup.”
Attendees will also notice a few new additions to this year’s event, including live chainsaw carving demonstrations and axe throwing. The Humane Society of Wicomico County will also be on site with adoptable dogs.
Tall Tales Brewing Company will sponsor the Carni Beer Games, which include a keg toss, beer shot put, cornhole and ring toss. Attendees can also sign up on site to take part in Tall Tales relay races Friday and Saturday.
On Friday night, Froggy 99.9’s Whiskey & Randy will be looking for brave volunteers to take part in their Adult Spelling Bee. Participants will battle it out on the main stage for a Tall Tales gift card, Tall Tales merchandise, a medal and bragging rights.
The festival also features music, regional cuisine and craft vendors.
“We packed the roster full of entertainment and activities,” Simmons said. “There’s truly something for everyone at this year’s event.”
Festival hours are Friday, Oct. 8 from 5-10 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 9 from noon-5 p.m.
Tasting tickets include a sampling glass and as many samples as one can responsibly consume.
