The eighth annual Surf 'n' Suds Beer Festival in Carpinteria will take place Saturday, August 15th. The "Beer Festival with a Surf Twist" has the best of both worlds at the Carpinteria State Beach in Carpinteria from 11:30 a.m. / 12:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
This is the largest craft beer festival on the Central Coast, with over 75 craft breweries, ciders, kombucha, and wineries! Live music by Cornerstone Reggae, and DJ Hecktik!
We have a great variety of food trucks and vendors, lawn games, including mega sized beer pong and plenty of places to sit in the shade! We are right next to the beach and there are campsites available at the Carpinteria State Beach (book now, or campsites will sellout).
