The Fun Stuff

Arts & Crafts – Get creative with our friends from Chikoko.
Human Hungry Hippos – Life-sized version of the beloved tabletop game.
Ropes course – It’s pretty high up, and pretty far out.
Archery tag – Unleash your inner Katniss in a battle against your friends.
Rock climbing wall – It’s massive, but you’re fearless, right?
Keg bowling – Eh, it’s more like “keg chucking,” but you’re still bowling over some pins.
Human foosball – Start recruiting your team, or draft free agents once you’re there.
Corn hole – Because this is one of our favorite sports.
Zorb racing – An outta-this-world human hamster wheel like you’ve never seen.
GellyBall – Capture the Flag meets paintball, but with soft, water-based beads instead!
Hammock lounge stations – Naptime is back and better than ever.

It's all about the

The Vibes

Crank the volume in the Little Things Lounge, featuring super talented entertainers providing all the festival vibes.

Silent Disco DJs -We are excited to welcome the following DJs! | Jolene | Spretch Magic | DJ Trazz | DJ Uyes |

Live Karaoke – what summer camp talent shows should’ve been — live band, you behind the mic, and a crowd of fans singing along. Time to hit the stage!

Zero Waste & Sustainability

Awesome events, done right.

That’s the goal! Every year, we divert more than 90% of the Beer Camp waste away from landfill, and it’s a comprehensive effort.

Recyclable Containers

Recyclable Containers

Serving our beverages in recyclable vessels such as aluminum cans or reusable tasting glasses. Recycling stations are available throughout the event.

Bike Valet

Bike Valet

Partnering with Chico Velo to provide Bike Valet services for avid cyclists or those using alternative forms of transportation.

Reusable Water Bottles

Reusable Water Bottles

Highly encouraging attendees and staff to bring a reusable water bottle from home and providing access to water throughout the event space.



Requiring all food vendors to use compostable service materials.

YOU can help us make Beer Camp a Zero-Waste Event!

1. Bring your reusable water bottle and refill it at one of our many “Water Monster” stations.
2. Ride your bike (or scooter, or unicycle) to the festival. We’ll protect it overnight if you need to leave it.
3. Crush those cans! Once you’ve finished a beverage, drop it at one of our recycling stations.
4. Stay tuned for more tips…

Please don't drink and drive

Really, we can’t stress this enough

If you overindulge, leave your car or bike overnight and come back for it the next day. Take the free shuttle or a taxi; you’ll make some new friends and keep everyone safe. We also created these great options for you:

Transportation & Parking



From Downtown Chico — the shuttle will run on a continuous loop on Friday and Saturday from 4:30-11:00 p.m. Pick up and drop off are at the transit center across from Madison Bear Garden. This is the ideal option for those seeking post-fest fun.



Chico Velo is offering complimentary bike valet services and there is plentiful bike parking at the brewery! We don’t advocate drinking and riding your bike, though.



Complimentary parking is available at the fairgrounds, which is a short walk to the brewery, or you can take the shuttle that will run back and forth from 4:30-11:00 p.m. If you need to, you can leave your car overnight at the fairgrounds and pick it up the next day.

No Parking on site at Sierra Nevada!
