Those who don’t have tickets yet can purchase them at the check in stations as well.

From there, crawlers can stop by the 10 local businesses along the crawl and enjoy a craft brew at any or each stop along the way. Stops include Big Box Karaoke, Startup Junkie, Zenwork, SharpHue, Brewer Family Entrepreneurship Hub, AcreTrader, Bearded Goat, Encore Bank, the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center (ASBTDC) + Startup Village, and an Entrepreneurial Resource Stop at the Fayetteville Town Center Plaza. 

In addition to the brews, stages will be set up on East Avenue and Block Avenue with live music by The 1 oz. Jig, JukeBoxx, Thrifty Biscuits, and Akeem Kemp.
