Festival Info

The Big Texas Beer Fest is Dallas’ original beer festival. The 2017 event is the sixth-annual and happens March 31 AND April 1 at the Fair Park Automobile Building spanning 2 sessions. Last year’s festival featured beers from 140 breweries and 500+ beers. We expect similar numbers this year!

BTBF is well-known as the festival to go to for exclusive/rare beers, one-offs and special firkins. Since brewers never know when beers will be ready, we always release the beer list a week before the event. Grab your tickets now, as they have always sold out in advance.

As you might expect, much of the festival focuses on the emerging North Texas craft beer scene, and Texas craft beer as a whole.

Plenty of food will be available from one of our many food trucks, or local artisanal food vendors. While you eat, you can listen to local/national music acts on our outdoor stage!
