fourth annual tahoe brewfest, a beautiful day of brews 

2020 Tahoe Brewfest cancelation notice.

Tahoe Brewfest Supporters,

7/16/2020 – Due to the added restrictions by the state of California and the recent announcement from the City of South Lake Tahoe canceling their events through the end of September, we have made the tough decision to cancel the 2020 Tahoe Brewfest.

We want to thank our community and our attendees for being optimistic through this process and hope you all know how much we appreciate your support. On top of being an amazing event bringing craft beer lovers from around the world together, Tahoe Brewfest is also the primary fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe, a local non-profit that provides safe, fun and educational programs for local children during out-of-school time. Tahoe Brewfest provides 15% of the Club’s annual budget, and the loss of that income is a major blow to the Club. During this crisis, everyone at the Boys & Girls Club have continued to be rockstars, providing essential services for Tahoe youth!

Jude Wood, the Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe, shared, “This is not the outcome we hoped for when we delayed the event to September, but it is the right one for our community and all the amazing people who attend the Tahoe Brewfest. If you are interested in helping the Club during this difficult time you can donate the cost of your ticket to the Club or join our Team AWESOME campaign. More information on Team AWESOME can be found at and any donation over $25 gets you the coolest pair of socks you’ve ever seen!  100% of donations will go directly towards youth services.”

All ticket holders for the now-canceled 2020 Tahoe Brewfest have three options regarding purchases:

1. Transfer your purchased ticket to next year’s date. No further action needs to be taken on your part. Your current ticket will be valid for the new date.

2. Donate! If you’re feeling generous during this pandemic and want to make a difference in a childs life, consider donating the cost of your ticket(s) to help pay for scholarships for children affected by the shut-down at the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe.

3. Request a refund for the purchase price of your ticket(s), minus the service fee, by filling out the form below.

*In order to receive a ticket refund or to donate the cost of your ticket, you must submit your request by September 30th, 2020 here: Tahoe Brewfest Refund & Donation Request Form

We can’t wait to see you for the 2021 Tahoe Brewfest, raising our glasses in celebration as we kick off a most excellent summer. Cheers!
