Vancouver’s beer & wine festival celebrates 10 years, Quiet Riot & Great White to Perform

Vancouver, WA (March 27th, 2023) – The Craft Beer & Wine Festival will return to Esther Short Park with 100 local craft brews, 100 local craft wines & local craft distilleries for the 10th annual event.

Friday’s entertainment will be Quiet Riot who is celebrating 40 years, & Great White. Saturday, Curtis Salgado and Johnny Wheels & The Swamp Donkeys will perform. Sunday is “kill the keg” day with $5 pints & wine flights.

“We needed a way to maximize exposure for our local breweries & wineries. This is a great way to serve all of the beer in the kegs, so none goes to waste” says Rusty Hoyle, event organizer. “We’re all about helping local, small businesses. It’s important to create a concept that will draw a lot of people. That way, everyone wins.” The festival will have more than 30 craft breweries, 20 craft wineries, 4 distilleries, 5 food vendors and 35 craft vendors, all of which are small businesses. Most of the vendors are woman, veteran and/or minority owned local small businesses.

Ticket prices vary by day, and each ticket gets you in the following day for free if you keep your wristband on and bring a can of food for the Clark County Food Bank.

Proceeds benefit local small businesses and the Clark County Food Bank.

“It’s hard coming out of the pandemic. The Oregon Brewers Festival canceled this year, we felt it’s time to switch up the festival feel for a bit. So, we’re increasing our beer inventory and bringing in Quiet Riot who is celebrating 40 years, to celebrate our 10th year with us” says Hoyle.

Breweries from WA and OR are invited to join us.
