The 12th annual Oregon Garden Brewfest presented by Venti’s Café will take place June 17 through 19 – Father’s Day weekend – at The Oregon Garden, located at 879 W Main St. in Silverton. The popular Willamette Valley festival will feature 120 handcrafted beers, ciders and mead from 60 different breweries from across the nation. Event hours are 3pm to 11pm Friday, Noon to 11pm Saturday, and Noon to 6pm Sunday.

New this year, the Oregon Garden Brewfest will relocate from its traditional indoor setting out into the forest, where the participating breweries will be set up in booths dotted throughout the woods underneath the warm glow of bistro lights. There will be a number of cozy fire pits and covered areas available for people to gather with family and friends.

“We are so excited to bring Brewfest into the heart of the Garden,” exclaimed Brittney Hatteberg, regional marketing manager for The Oregon Garden. “Guests can take better advantage of the summer weather and explore more of the Garden from this location. It will be a charming experience, and unlike any other beer festival in Oregon.

Guests are encouraged to take their beer and explore the 80-acres of botanical gardens, which will be in full bloom in June. There will also be live music on one stage under a tent in the forest, allowing guests to hear the music comfortably from a variety of locations. Local act Deadwood Standing will headline the stage Friday night; additional acts will be announced online.

Also new this year, minors will be welcome on Saturday from Noon to 5pm and during all hours on Sunday; on Father’s Day, there will be a kid’s craft area as well. The new location is closer to the Children’s Garden, allowing families to be near the festivities as well as close to entertainment for kids.

Advance admission ranges from $15 for a one-day ticket to $30 for a three-day ticket to $55 for a VIP ticket; door prices increase by $5. All admission packages include a souvenir pint glass and a varying number of tasting tickets. In most instances, a full glass of beer costs four tickets, and a taster costs one; additional tasting tickets may be purchased for $1 apiece. Designated drivers pay $5, which includes a bottle of water, and minors pay $5; children ages four and under are free. Silverton residents receive a discount on Friday with proof of residency. Parking at The Oregon Garden is $5 per car; free shuttles are available from various locations in Silverton. See all ticket pricing information and purchase advance tickets at

The ideal way to enjoy the Brewfest is to book a room at the Oregon Garden Resort, a Moonstone Hotel Property located just steps away from the festival. Brewfest Packages starts at $269 and include accommodation, two three-day admission passes to Brewfest with a tasting glass and five tasting tickets, a continental buffet breakfast and admission to The Oregon Garden. Packages can be booked at or by calling 503-874-2500.

The Oregon Garden Brewfest is presented by Venti’s Café and sponsored by Country Financial, Oregon Lottery, Goschie Farms, Imperial Bottle Shop, Oregon Beer Growler and Portland General Electric. For more information, visit

    This is the perfect gifts for my two best friends who are having a really hard time right now. One was laid off work, the other is going through depression and panic attacks. I want to give these two tickets to them so that they can have a wonderful day filled with laughter, fun, and nothing but friendship and delicious beer, to show them what life is really all about.
    Please help!

    This sounds like an amazing event and I’d like to attend because I am still new to Oregon and would love a chance to explore what this state has to offer. Being unemployed doesn’t help me get out much but trying to make it happen since there IS just soooo much here. Texas is great but Oregon is awesome.

    Last trip to the gardens it was pouring rain. This time it’s beer.
