In previous years, the beer festival took place at Armory Park in downtown Tucson, but this will be its first time setting up shop at the plaza located at 260 S. Church Ave.

“We’ve been gone too long,” the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild said in a statement. “We’re bringing Baja Back, baby.”

The last Baja Beer Festival happened back in April 2019, but the Brewers Guild has gotten the band back together, so to speak. This year, there will be three different tickets for sale, so take a look and see what’s your cup of tea — or beer.

General Admission
  • $45 per person
  • Entry at 1 p.m.
  • 20 tasting tickets (two tickets per four-ounce beer tasting or one ticket per two-ounce beer tasting)
VIP Admission
  • $65 per person
  • Entry at noon
  • 25 tasting tickets (two tickets per four-ounce beer tasting or one ticket per two-ounce beer tasting)

Additionally, there’s going to be some great local food parked around the area, but you’ll have to stay tuned for those details. The beer festival ends at 5 p.m. and the “last pour” is at 4:45 p.m.

Baja Beer Festival is still working on confirming all of the brew vendors, but here’s what they’re working with so far (subject to change, too).
