Tickets are now on-sale for the 18th Annual Hood River Hops Fest that returns to downtown Hood River on Saturday, October 1, 2022. Presented by Jacob’s, the Hood River Hops Fest is an annual celebration of beer’s bitter friend, freshly harvested hops.

Hood River County is surrounded by world-renowned hop-growing regions, and since 2003 brewers have gathered each September in downtown Hood River to share their fresh-hop beer creations. The family-friendly event features more than 30 breweries with more than 40 fresh-hop beers, plus a variety of food vendors, live music, and an awesome collectible mug.

Advance tickets are now on sale with a few options. An entry ticket with glass mug and 5 tasting tokens is $20 + fees or a tasting package that includes a glass mug and 10 tasting tokens is $30 + fees. Plus, an advance ticket purchase will allow for entry into the Hops Festival one hour earlier at 11:00am.

Entry only into event is $10 and a commemorative glass mug and additional tokens may be purchased inside the event. Kids are free until 6 pm, then 21+ only. If available, entry at the gate will be $30 and only include a glass mug and 5 tasting tickets.
