Tickets for The Promenade Beer & Wine Festival will go on sale starting September 3, the Downtown Long Beach Associates (DLBA) recently announced. To take place on Saturday, October 10, from 6:00PM to 10:00PM, the event is produced in partnership with the local craft beer experts of Beachwood BBQ & Brewing.

This popular Promenade event celebrates the growth of wine bars and craft beer brewed, served and relished in Long Beach, not to mention its diverse array of culinary cleverness. The festival will take place on downtown Long Beach’s Promenade, hence the name, and will feature live music from local bands, a free bike valet, art classes and much more.

Nearly 2,700 people attended last year’s event, which featured 21 different breweries, 19 wineries and 19 restaurants all within the two-block stretch between First and Third Streets. If last year’s lineup of SoCal brewers from Long Beach’s own Beachwood BBQ & Brewing to Saint Archer Brewing Company, was any kind of preview for this year’s stroll-and-waver, we can only wait in aching anticipation for the DLBA to release the full list.

In the meantime, get acquainted with the ticket details below so by the time they’re up for grabs you’ll know exactly what to do:
