Ciders, Sours and Seasonal Beers
Sample a range of seasonal beers at the third annual Washington Crossing Fall Brewfest on October 26 from 12:30 to 4:30 PM.
You'll have access to hundreds of ciders, sours, and seasonal beers (including pumpkin beers and seasonal IPAs) from dozens of local, regional, and national breweries. Beers are grouped by category, and all General Admission guests receive unlimited two-ounce pours in a special commemorative glass.
Unlike most brewfests, Washington Crossing Fall Brewfest pours specialty beers throughout the day at no extra charge. Everyone is a VIP!
In addition, many participating breweries send their own representatives, giving guests the chance to talk to the folks who know the beers best.
Washington Crossing Fall Brewfest is held in a beautiful wooded setting overlooking the Delaware River. Guests are surrounded by stunning autumn leaves, and small bonfires throughout the grounds add even more ambiance.
Multiple food vendors are on-site to provide mouthwatering meals and snacks.
100% the proceeds from your Fall Brewfest ticket will benefit the non-profit Friends of Washington Crossing Park, who support and promote Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA).
Frequently Asked Questions
How is the Fall Brewfest different from the Spring Brewfest held in May?
The Fall Brewfest will give you the chance to sample the many flavors of fall. Whether you're a fan of ciders, harvest and pumpkin ales, seasonal IPAs or sour beers, we'll have options for you! Vendors will offer food to complement the range of seasonal beers on tap.
Both Brewfests have earned a regional reputation of offering a great selection of rare and unique beers from dozens of breweries and situating the event in a wooded, riverside section of Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA). Proceeds from both brewfests benefit the non-profit Friends of Washington Crossing Park, whose volunteers run both events and other park traditions, such as the annual Crossing reenactment.
Where is the Fall Brewfest held?
The Brewfest is held in Washington Crossing, located in beautiful Bucks County, PA. The Brewfest site is located right next to the Delaware River in a shaded, wooded landscape. It is in the upper part of the park, behind the historic Thompson Neely House and Farmstead. This is across River Road from Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve, which is located 2.5 miles from the center of New Hope and 4.5 miles from the four-way stop sign in Washington Crossing, PA.
The address is 1638 River Road, New Hope, PA 18938.
Do I need a photo ID, even if I am obviously over 21?
Pennsylvania state law stipulates that everyone who enters the Brewfest must present a valid photo ID. We will check all IDs at the gate.
Can I re-enter the Fall Brewfest once I've left?
Once you have left the grounds, you may not re-enter. Bathrooms, water and food are available on the grounds.
Can I buy beer at the Brewfest?
This is a sampling event only. Guests will receive two-ounce pours of many different kinds of beers.
How can I get involved as a volunteer, food vendor or participating brewery?
Volunteers, breweries and food vendors may email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
All volunteers must be 21 or older to participate in the actual Brewfest, but those under 21 may participate in setting up and cleaning up. Volunteers are not permitted to consume any alcoholic beverage before or during their shift.
What are my transportation and parking options?
Please designate a driver (a very limited number of DD tickets are available) or take advantage of Uber or Lyft after the event. Parking will be clearly marked.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the Brewfest?
Yes, please print out your ticket and bring it with you. We will scan your ticket at the gate as you enter, and this goes much faster with a paper ticket.

Tickets are not refundable for any reason—no exceptions. You may pass on your ticket to another party, as long as that attendee is 21 or older with a valid photo ID.
