How long does the event last?

The unlimited craft beer and wine tastings go until 4pm but the music lasts until 10pm!

Will tickets be sold at the door?

Yes, if they aren’t sold out. They will be $10 more each. Don't forget, if they are available, you can still buy tickets online before you leave the house and print your ticket there which will save you some time at the event.

Is there a shuttle service to and from the event so we don't have to drive?

We STRONGLY recommend you utilize the San Diego Trolley, Amtrak or ride sharing programs like LYFT.

Please read our TRANSPORTATION section for all convenient options.

Does my general admission ticket or VIP get me into the music concert too?

Yes! For those 21+, the ticket gets you in the door to enjoy unlimited tastings until 4pm and the entire sprawling site to enjoy the music stage as well.

How and when can I buy Designated Driver Tickets?

Designated Driver tickets can only be bought at the door the day of the event while entering with the people/person they will be driving.

We will be bringing a Designated Driver for our group of VIP attendees. Which Designated Driver pass do we buy for them?

We only have one type of Designated Driver pass which must be purchased at the door while entering with the people/person they will be driving. Designated Drivers may enter the festival at the same time the people they are accompanying go in. However if those they are driving have VIP passes to go into the VIP lounge, the VIP viewing area or the meet and greet, the Designated Driver will need to buy a VIP package to receive these perks. The $40 DD pass is just to gain entry into the festival only.

Is there a fee for parking?

There are several neighboring parking lots that charge to park. Please check out our TRANSPORTATION section to reserve your parking spot ahead of time!

What if I lose or break my tasting glass?

Be careful! We do not provide replacements. You may be able to purchase one for $5.00 if supplies last. They are made out of a non-shatterable plastic so if you break it...you should really be more careful, in general :)

Can I buy extra commemorative glasses?

Yes, at the end of the event if supplies last.

What should I bring?

A current Photo I.D including your birth date (no photo copies accepted) and no exceptions for entry without this proof that you are 21 or over!

What NOT to bring?

Do not bring kids, glass, pets, alcohol, coolers, professional photo or video recording equipment, Frisbees or other games or any dangerous or illegal items. No tailgating prior to or after the festival is allowed. No refunds will be made.
