Frost Fest winter beer festival set for Feb. 3


A beer festival featuring brews from more than 50 breweries around the region is coming to Fayetteville this winter.

The event, organized each year by Fossil Cove, is set for Saturday, Feb. 3, 2024 at 2463 N. McConnel Ave (near the Washington County Fairgrounds), officials announced this week.

For those who aren’t familiar with Frost Fest, the event started in 2016 as a way to showcase local and regional breweries from around the region, and to give back to a few local organizations. The event typically includes dozens of breweries, including several that aren’t typically available in Fayetteville. The beers were often poured by the brewers themselves, and several attendees brought exclusive or special made beers just for the event.

Live music and food trucks are also part of the scene at the event.

Specific breweries, music, and more for this year’s event will be announced at a later date.

Tickets to the event range from $70 for general admission, to $100 for an early-entry ticket. Ticket prices go up to $80 on Jan. 1.

Ticket prices include a 2 oz tasting glass, access to the brews, live music, vendors, artists, makers, food trucks, and more.
