The Festival

Date: Sunday, 27th March 2022
Open: 11am - 6pm
Location: Victory Memorial Gardens (Wagga Wagga)
Cost: Adults $20, Kids $5 (you must register). Free for registered riders.

Our post-ride craft beer festival is a vibe on it's own, and is the ultimate finish to a morning ride.  We time our rides so most people should arrive will arrive around lunch time with the music pumping and beer flowing.  You can expect a smashing line-up of hand-crafted beers and ciders, outstanding locally roasted coffee, great local food and live entertainment. 

This year, festival entry for the non-rider is a little different. 
Due to current NSW COVID regs, we're capped at 3,000 people in the festival.  This includes riders, your cheer squad and those just coming for a beer.  We still want you to be able to bring the fam (that's part of the vibe), but if you do – you must register non-riders online and secure a ticket for them – if they want to enter the festival.  Even better, register them for the 10km ride along the river (includes festival entry in ticket price). 
As usual all registered riders get the festival entry included in their entry. 

So just repeating... all non-riders must register online for a festival ticket (got it?!!). If you do the math, usually we have about 5,000 people at the festival.  2022 limit of 3,000 (inc non-riders) means rider entries are going to be even more scarce than usual.

THE BEER, CIDER & WINE 

Craft brewers are a super passionate bunch and we want you to come and enjoy the fruits of their labour. Have a yarn to the brewers, let them educate you about what you are drinking, why it tastes the way it does and how it's brewed.

The 2022 line up will be shared soon! Below are the usual suspects we have seen pouring the beverages over the last few years. 

THE ENTERTAINMENT

There is plenty of atmosphere at the Craft Beer & Cider Festival, and the live entertainment throughout the day just adds to the vibe. Settle in with your family and friends and be entertained as you greet your riders back from their challenge. 

Stay tuned for who will be playing in 2022.
