In a first for both them and the District proper, LivingSocial is hosting its first Craft Beer and Food Truck Fest on Saturday, April 21 from 12pm to 5pm. This event will bring together more than 25 craft breweries along with 10 of DC’s best food trucks. Pre-sale is live now and offers the chance to get a significant discount off of the full ticket price. The event will take place at Kastles Stadium at the Southwest Waterfront.

This is the first largescale beer festival we can remember being held within the District’s borders. Pre-sale is live now. You can get to the pre-sale by visiting 500 pre-sale tickets will be available at a special $25 price; this is $10 less than the LivingSocial email price and $45 lower than the full ticket price of $70.

In addition to the breweries and food trucks, the fest will feature local musical groups and artists for a weekend of celebration that is unique to Washington, DC. Interactive art installations, musical entertainment and fun activities throughout the day will transform this event into a beer festival with a day-time party vibe.

Customers will have their ID checked and be given a bracelet, as well as a sampling glass, which will give them access to the event and tastings from each of the breweries. Food trucks will be selling their delectables to customers throughout the duration of the event. The festival will feature various stage and dance areas, communal “Oktoberfest-style” tables and benches, access to bleachers, VIP tents, boardwalks along the water, as well as free walking space where the food/drink vendors will be set up.
