The All Star Craft Beer & Wine Festival Is Coming Back to Citizens Bank Park!
After a sell-out crowd last year, thousands of beer enthusiasts and wine lovers will return to Citizens Bank Park on May 19, 2018 for the All Star Craft Beer and Wine Festival. Guests will be treated like ballpark royalty with exclusive giveaways, activities, and amazing craft beer and wine samples from around the world. This year, the festival area has expanded by 50% to provide attendees with more space to walk around, hang out with their friends, and have fun! With over 100 craft beer and wine vendors, food vendors, and live musical entertainment, guests are guaranteed the experience of a lifetime.
Ticket holders will also receive free parking, a voucher for two (2) tickets to a Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park, and get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get their picture taken in the Phillies dugout after walking the bases and warning track! This year, “The Yard” will also be open for attendees to take swings at the Phillies new whiffle ball park, and enjoy a variety of games throughout the entire concourse, such as giant bocci, fowling, cornhole, and even shoot some hot dogs from the Hatfield hot dog launcher. Four DJ’s, and two Acoustic Duo’s will also amp up the crowd, and keep the party going. Additionally, the Phillies vs. Cardinals will be airing LIVE on the giant 1,500” screen and dozens of screens throughout the ballpark to provide a true all star experience. The event runs from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm and VIP ticket holders will have access to the Hall of Fame Club/VIP Area with one-hour early entry at 2:00 p.m., and additional select beer & wine samples.
The All-Star Craft Beer and Wine will benefit the Fraternal Order of Police and The Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation uniting a sense of community in the Philadelphia region. The Foundation provides financial assistance to families who are in need, due to recent adversity or tragedy and are immensely grateful to be a part of the festival.
“The Barkann Family Healing Healing Heart Foundation is thrilled to be named one of the benefitting charities of the 2018 All Star Craft Beer and Wine Fest on Saturday, May 19th. The team at UpcomingEvents.com have been ardent supporters of The Barkann Foundation over the last (5) years through various events they have hosted throughout the Delaware Valley, which has raised more than $30,000 through fundraising events spanning that time period in support of The Foundation,” says Michael Barkann, Executive Director of the Barkann Family Healing Heart Foundation. ”Our Barkann Foundation team is honored and grateful to be a part of the 2nd Annual All Star Craft Beer and Wine Festival at Citizens Bank Park.
