Screw City Beer Festival 2023

Sep 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

An outdoor beer festival featuring regional breweries and local food along the banks of the Rock River in downtown Rockford, IL.

The 12th annual Screw City Beer Festival will be held on Saturday, September 9th, 2023, along the banks of the Rock River in the heart of downtown Rockford, IL.

General Admission $55 (limited to 4 per transaction)

All sales are final. SCBF is a rain or shine event. In the event of a cancellation due to any reason, all ticket sales will be deferred to the following year’s event.

2023 will retain the smaller format from the past few years:

  • 1500 Attendance
  • ~30-40 Brewery Participants
  • Single Ticket Tier & Session. (VIP will not return this year but won’t be gone forever!)
  • Event Session: 12pm to 4pm
  • In lieu of a physical program, event maps and beer lists will be accessible on your smartphone via our website. Save it or pin it to your smart phone home screen ahead of time or scan QR codes placed throughout the event for instant access.

These changes produced overwhelmingly positive feedback from both guests and brewery participants in 2021 and 2022 so we will continue this reduced format for the time being.

Code of Conduct:
