What should I wear?

Can I buy tickets at the door?

Eh, I don’t feel like going anymore. Can I get a refund?
No, sorry. All ticket sales are final.
Does my official NovemBEER shirt grant me access to the festival??
Yes, if you are wearing your official NovemBEER shirt to the festival, you will receive one free general admission ticket into the festival. You can also upgrade your general admission ticket to VIP for $20 at the door.

Is NovemBEER a pet-friendly event?
Where do I even park at the Arizona Center?
