frequently asked questions

what does my ticket purchase get me?

Your ticket gets you into all areas of the event, 12 sample sized margaritas, access to our photo booth and other fun activities! There will be food available for purchase from local food vendors, and beer available for purchase at our cash bar.

Can i bring my kids? What about my dog?

Unfortunately, we have found that kids and tequila aren’t a great combo. This event is strictly 21+ so line up a babysitter and come on down and join us for some margaritas. Sorry, pups aren’t allowed either.

Is there a DD ticket?

Yes! We encourage you to drink responsibly so please take a ride share or designate a driver. Designated driver tickets are available with the promo code DD20 for $20 off your ticket. PLEASE NOTE that designated drivers will not be permitted to drink within the festival, including beer from our cash bar.
