City of Lancaster Announces the Fifth Annual Field of Drafts Beer Festival
Excitement is brewing as the City of Lancaster announces its fifth annual Field of Drafts beer festival, to be held Saturday, November 4, from 1- 5 p.m. at The Hangar – Lancaster Municipal Stadium. This popular, ever growing event will once again feature live music, sports entertainment, and of course, a delectable selection of brews.
“The Field of Drafts beer festival has quickly, but not surprisingly become a tradition here in Lancaster, a tradition enjoyed by nearly 4,000 attendees last year – and growing,” said Lancaster Parks, Recreation and Arts Director Ronda Perez. “Field of Drafts may appear to be primarily about the beer, but it is definitely so much more; it serves as a wonderful community opportunity for friends, family, and neighbors to connect while enjoying an afternoon of fun, music, food, dancing, and of course beer.”
Festival attendees will enjoy a wide selection of more than 80 types of brews. Beer connoisseurs can savor the opportunity to discover a new favorite, while those who are new to the craft scene can experiment with tasting a broad variety of specially crafted ales.
“Events such as Field of Drafts are great for our local businesses,” said Council Member Ken Mann. “This event allows the local breweries like Bravery Brewing Company and Kinetic Brewing Company to showcase their products alongside other highly recognized brands – providing yet another opportunity for our local businesses and their owners to shine.”
General admission tickets are $45 each and include live music, sports entertainment, and an expansive selection of craft beers from more than 40 of the finest brewers in California. Military and seniors (ages 55 and up) receive a $10 discount on general admission.
Designated Drivers (DD), 21 and over, will be admitted for $10, with a valid driver’s license required at the time of arrival. DD admission includes a snack and bottled water. Preferred parking is $5, while offsite parking is free.
