It’s time for the Westminster Beer and BBQ Stroll, one of our favorite events of the year! Delicious and savory barbecue and rich beer brews, what’s not to love?

This year marks the 4th time that this festival has been held in Westminster. We wanted to put together this guide here to help make sure this is the best Beer and BBQ Stroll ever!

How Can I Get Into the Stroll?

Anyone wishing to participate in the festival must first purchase a ticket. General admission tickets cost $20 and VIP tickets are $39. Tickets can either be purchased the day of the stroll or at the Westminster government’s website.

What benefits does a VIP ticket entitle you to? Why is one worth $19 more? VIP tickets come with the following:

  • The ability to sample breweries 1 hour before the general admission ticket holders
  • Additional beer samples
  • Hors d’oeuvres
  • Reserved parking
  • Complimentary water
  • Private restrooms
  • A special seating area

There are only 200 VIP tickets, and they are first come first serve.

The cookoff will be judged by the VIP ticket holders. There’s only space for 10 entrants so make sure to register sooner rather than later.

Have a Blast

The stroll will be on Saturday June 15, 2019. You don’t want to wake up on Sunday morning reading all about the fun everyone had the day before. That’s how you get some serious FOMO (fear of missing out).

Don’t worry about parking, there is plenty of free parking, just make sure to park in the blue sections of this Wine Stroll Map.
