All session for the 2017 GABF are sold out. All 60,000 tickets sold out in four hours. Hotel rooms are vanishing too. Next up are airline tickets. It will be fun for those who are going.
If you did not get a ticket and wanted to go to a great festival, there are still tickets available for Canada’s best festival in Victoria, BC – The Great Canadian Beer Festival. I have been more than a few times and it is wonderful.
The festival has three public sessions (TH, F, S evenings) and an afternoon session on Saturday exclusively for American Home Brewers Association (AHA) members. They have sold 60,000 tickets in the expanded (by 90,000 sq ft) venue at the Colorado Convention center this year. More brewers will be there than ever before, and more beers to sample and more people with whom to party.
In 2012, everything sold out in a couple of days. In 2013, all the tickets were gone in less than an hour. Last year by some accounts, the event was declared SOLD OUT in less than 10 minutes.
