28th Annual
Made in the Shade
beer tasting festival!


1 pm-5 pm (VIP Entrance 12 noon) 

Pepsi Amphitheater, Ft. Tuthill County Park, Flagstaff, AZ


We are, as the rest of the world, watching developments and trying
to both plan for a Festival and plan for not a Festival...
Our first plan is to have the festival (if safe, prudent, and advised).
Next, we would look to postpone it.
The last resort would be to cancel it.
All of these dependent on recommendations from CDC
and fed/state/local authorities.
We're still working on the plan for what we would do if cancelled 
as this is the major fundraising event to provide our information
access service for free to people who are unable to read due to a disability. 
We will notify everyone who has purchased online tickets of any decisions.

The Made in the Shade Beer Tasting Festival returns for its 28th year as Northern Arizona's longest running, most popular craft beer tasting event featuring a superb venue: the Pepsi Amphitheater. The Pepsi Amphitheater is in a natural forest bowl at the heart of Ft. Tuthill County Park and is Northern Arizona's largest outdoor venue. 

Every dollar raised goes to Sun Sounds of Arizona and allows print-disabled people to stay connected to their community--it's an opportunity to come out for a super-fun weekend and support a needed radio reading service in Flagstaff and surrounding regions.


No pets, except service animals, of course. 
No firearms.
No children.
No one under 21-years old will be allowed into the festival as an attendee, staff member, brewer, or vendor. There are no exceptions. 
Must have ID. 
There will be no refunds of any kind for any reason.
Persons who appear to be intoxicated will be assisted out of the festival.
