Tickets

You are invited to experience The Funk at its highest level. The Festival of Funk is a celebration of sours, saisons, and all things funky, carefully curated from some of the most fearlessly innovative brewers in the world. We’ve put together a jaw-droppingly rad group of breweries and secured a beautiful outdoor setting at Liberty Station’s North Promenade for a party of epic proportions.

Attendees will be baptized in the deep and diverse waters of funk, from the delightfully tropical to the intensely sour and everything in between, experiencing the truly amazing variety of flavors these exotic microflora are capable of kicking out. The Festival of Funk will also a prime opportunity to pick the brains of some of the most talented and adventurous brewers in the world, so come prepared with your beer-nerdiest questions.

We'll have plenty of food options on site as well as water stations, an outrageously funky DJ mix from Peso, and a few surprises. We'll also have tons of ultra-sexy merchandise on hand, including a painfully fresh, limited edition Festival of Funk tee.

All proceeds from Festival of Funk will be benefiting the incredibly kick-ass BikeSD organization, a non-profit working to make San Diego a better place to live, work, and ride.

Festival Tee

All Sizes: $20

Surround yourself with the power of The Funk in this staggeringly sexy masterpiece of apparel design. These showstoppers are going to be as saucy as they are limited. We’ll have a small quantity for sale at the event, but if you want to make sure you’ve got one locked down you can add it to your ticket price at checkout for an additional $20.
