50TH ANNUAL CARNATION FESTIVAL | WHEAT RIDGE, COLORADO | Family Fun SINCE 1969

The Carnation Festival Beer Garden, despite the name, will offer a wide variety of beverages for the entire family. They will have two locations: one in the beer garden near the Main Stage, the other in the center of the Food Court.  Water, diet and regular soft drinks are available for $1 each. Beer and wine will be available for adults. The Rotary Club has teamed up with Budweiser and Breckenridge Brewery to offer a great selection of beers. In addition to Bud and Bud Light on-tap, the craft beers include Agave Wheat, Mango Mosaic, Avalanche and IPA Lucky U. Craft beers and wine are available for $8 each and Bud and Bud Light for $6. This is the only major fundraising event for the Wheat Ridge Rotary each year. Funds gained at the festival remain in the community by way of scholarships and funds to local non-profit organizations.

The Carnation Festival boasts one of the largest festival beer & wine gardens in Colorado!

Serving both domestic and craft beer favorites, plus wine, spritzers and margaritas, we offer lots of choices and three bars on site. You can grab a beer or glass of wine in the food court with your meal, sit in the main beer garden and enjoy great live music or wander on down the midway to check out the vendors, carnival rides and games or shop the 150+ artisans and crafters at the Vendor Fair. Or you might just hang out under the shade of a big tree or one of the many tented seating areas to enjoy your frosty brew with friends. This is by far one of the best beer gardens around, because the whole festival is the beer garden!
