The 9th Annual Powder Keg Beer Festival, scheduled on Saturday, October 2nd from 11:00 AM-4:00 PM at Swasey Parkway, is your chance to get outside and enjoy the largest beer festival in New England after a year away. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and to keep people as safe as possible, chili will not be served at this year’s festival. However, the festival will welcome food trucks offering different varieties of food for all to enjoy, and attendees are encouraged to visit local restaurants before or after the event. Tickets are $45 for beer tickets or $10 for designated driver tickets. There will be two sessions that people will have the option of attending: the first being from 11:00 am-1:00 pm or 2:00 pm-4:00 pm. Attendance is limited to 1,500 people per session, and tickets will need to be purchased ahead of time as organizers expect the event to sell out.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Must be 21 years of age or older to attend. Sorry, no children or babies this year. No pets allowed (park rules)
