The 27th annual Vermont Brewers Festival returns to the waterfront on July 19-20, with over 50 breweries featured. Visitors will have access to live concerts, beer and food pairings, and a waterfront view.

The Brewfest has four sessions (two each day), on Friday and Saturday. While both of the Saturday sessions have sold out, tickets are still available for both sessions on Friday.

Large events like this one will affect parking availability and traffic. No one likes sitting in traffic and fighting for parking spaces, so below are a few options that will hopefully ease travel and diminish road rage.

Public Transportation:

For those who decide to park further than walking distance from the event, the Green Mountain Transit’s Purple Line Shuttle runs for free. The bus will bring passengers from the waterfront up to the UVM Medical Center, and vice versa.

Green Cab, a Brewfest sponsor, will also be available to give rides to and from the event. Their number is 802-864-2424.


Biking is another option if you’re looking for a convenient way to get to the event. Local Motion provides free bike valet, located north of the Waterfront parking lot on Lake Street. It is just a short walk down to waterfront from there.

Car Parking:

For those who decide to drive to the event, take a look at our interactive map for parking options and hourly rates.

Lake Street Extension, Pease Lot, Lakeview Garage, and College St Garage are all in reasonable proximity to the event.

Have fun, drink good beer, and most importantly, don’t drink and drive. Consider these options instead – bribe one of your friends to be the designated driver, or just call an Uber.
