Thank you for the generous response!
We have enough volunteers for this year.

Hope to see you at FredFest!

This year's charity is the Oregon Zoo Foundation. We are building a fund in remembrance of Michael Olsen, a Hair of the Dog employee who was shot and killed on the streets of Portland last year

Our goal is to provide scholarships for kids to go to summer camps at the Zoo, hoping to instill a love of animals and nature in them, just like Mikey had

100% of FredFest ticket sales go to our charity, Hair of the Dog covers all expenses for the event, so we encourage you to pay more than the suggested ticket price.

Some of this year's beers include:

Tickets are $65, includes a commemorative glass, beer food buffet, and a special selection of beers.

Designated Driver tickets are $30, includes food and soft drinks

*IMPORTANT! Guests must be 21 and over to attend. Please bring your identification. No tickets will be mailed, you will be on a list at the door as a group.

We care about you! Bring your designated driver and don't drink and drive. Other options are The Portland Streetcar, TriMet Bus or Taxi. There will also be bike parking available.
