The Beer & Brat Street Fest, one of our newest festivals, has quickly become one of Sparta's favorites! And there's no wondering why; The festival features locally made brats and beer, super fun games and activities, local craft vendors, and awesome live music! Beer & Brat Street Fest 2023 will be on June 16 (from 4 pm-11 pm) and 17 (from 11 am-11 pm) in Downtown Sparta!
What to Expect:
The streets will be filled with all kinds of fun! On-site there will be locally brewed beer and specialty brats that you can purchase! Sparta has a Social District, meaning you can take an adult beverage from one of our participating restaurants, and walk the streets with it! The street will be lined with dozens of vendors that you can shop from, and there will be three stages featuring live music throughout the festival! There are some ticketed games, but there is no admission fee. You can hang out and enjoy the music, the atmosphere, and certain activities for free!
You can buy event tickets or brat tickets on-site, otherwise, you can buy a lanyard ahead of time that gives you some of both! The event tickets allow you to play any of the games including fowling, axe throwing, and bumper cars, or participate in the make-and-take activities like macrame keychain making or caricature drawing! The brat tickets are how you get delicious brats! You can pick between 6 specialty flavors, or you can try them all with the brat flight! The flight gives you half of each flavor, so you're not missing out on any of them! You can purchase your Beer & Brat Event Lanyard in advance at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/590312660057
Make sure to try your hand at the dunk tank! The proceeds from the dunk tank will be donated to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!
