RICHMOND, va. (WTVR) –The weather will be gorgeous, the beer will be plenty, tunes will be played, the price is right AND a portion of tickets sales goes to FETCH a Cure, a non-profit organization that helps pets.

To boot, the event will be held on historic Mayo Island.

RVA ROCK$ and FETCH A Cure presents the first beer festival of the year featuring only local craft breweries.

There will be unlimited sampling of more than 20 local craft brews along with live music, a top selection of RVA’s favorite food vendors and a commemorative pint glass (while supplies last).

All sampling is included in the regular ticket price, and additional 16 oz. pours will be available from $6 – $7 each. Additionally, VIP ticketholders will have access to sampling one hour before the general public (11:00 am) as well as a catered VIP section, preferred parking and more.

All ticketholders will have access to the festival throughout the day with a designated wristband.
