The annual DC Beer Festival is one of the most iconic festivals to take place in Nationals Park. Every year, thousands of people flock to the stadium to get a taste of the impressive selection of craft breweries and food trucks.
This year, the festival has two great ticket options: General Admission is $50 and comes with unlimited access to over 80 excellent breweries, live music, and access to the food truck alley and dueling piano bar. If you’re leaning towards a more exclusive option, then the $90 VIP Admission is a steal! At this price tier, you can go home with a DC Beer Fest beanie, a commemorative tasting glass, and access to the warning track and dugouts.
Since this is a non-smoking event, you might not be able to light a joint in the middle of the festival. Don’t let this ruin your 420 celebrations, though! You can certainly smoke a bowl at home or join in the festivities with some discreet edibles.
