Paso Robles Event Center


Join us and more than 55 of our brewery friends as the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest returns to Paso Robles on June 4, 2022.

“The Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival has rapidly blossomed into one of the best pure beer fests on the planet.”

– Paste Magazine

The Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest was born from a dream of creating a world-class festival featuring some of the best brewers in the world. This is a day when we can set the sales pitches aside and simply share our beers and stories with passionate craft drinkers. It’s all about the brewers, their beers, good music and folks who care.

The Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest benefits the nonprofit Paso Robles Pioneer Day, a beloved community organization since 1931.

How do I get tickets?

Tickets are sold out for this year’s festival. The 2022 festival is the rescheduling of the sold-out 2020 festival, and all original tickets will be honored.

Are my tickets from the postponed 2020 festival still valid?

Yes. Ticketholders will receive an email from Eventbrite in February that will provide a link to your active tickets that you can print or save. Remember that all communications will be sent to the email address you used when you purchased the tickets.

Can I sell my 2020 tickets?

We’re sorry you can’t join us, but the tickets are yours to do what you’d like with! Feel free to reach out to us at, and we’ll change the name and email address associated with the tickets so that any event communications go to the new ticketholders.

Are there designated driver tickets?

We aren’t able to offer specially priced tickets for designated drivers. The ticket price includes not only beer tasting but also food and access to concerts throughout the day. And remember – all net proceeds benefit the Pioneer Day, a local non-profit organization.
