The Quad State Beer Fest: Year 7!
SHAMROCKED - NOW September 19th
FINAL REVIEW/TICKETS ON SALE AUGUST 31st
FULL STATEMENT (7/18/20):
Per the State of Maryland, we were not allowed to host the Quad State Beer Fest: ShamRocked on March 14th at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center due to concerns of the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Per the guidance of national, state and local agencies and for continued health and support reasons, the August 8th date has now been RESCHEDULED...
THE NEW DATE IS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19th
If you have tickets for the original date (March 14, 2020 or August 8, 2020), they will be honored on September 19th. If you cannot attend on September 19th, you may instead use your ticket at one of the following events:
Interstate Blues Fest/Wine Fest - August 29th
Fall Back Wine Fest - November 7th
Quad State Beer Fest: ShamRocked - March 13, 2021
1. The Governor and County Health Official have both encouraged the public to NOT attend large gatherings at this time.
2. Volunteers/Staff are dropping and/or are very concerned about health and safety.
3. Beer suppliers: more than half cannot or do not want to attend due to low inventory and staff health concerns.
4. Heat + Alcohol + Masks = Potentially very dangerous.
NONE of the above were foreseeable when we originally rescheduled for August 8th.
ALL of the above could take a turn for the better with this six week delay.
Having re-rescheduled for September 19th, we will review all of the above and make a final determination on August 31st as to whether or not to proceed with the September 19th date.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. This has been hell for so many of us and we are committed to having our beloved beer fest when it is safe.
Any negative or controversial feedback will not be tolerated and will be removed.
