2020 Omaha Beer Fest

Omaha Beer Fest (OBF) returns to the grass at Horsemen’s Park on Saturday, July 18th. Omaha Beer Fest is the largest craft beer festival in Nebraska. It offers attendees a chance to sample hundreds of unique craft beers, seltzers, ciders, hard sodas and wines. Home Brewers are welcome to participate in OBF 2020 thanks to LB235 being passed by the Nebraska Legislature in 2019.

Fans will enjoy the central location and the excitement of this unique festival experience. The hours for the 2020 festival will be 4pm-11:30pm (free brew samples until 9pm). The famous “OBF Best Beard Contest” will be at 8:30pm followed by the epic, “OBF After Party” which begins at 9pm.

“The infield of our racetrack has proven to be the ideal location for Omaha Beer Fest. Each year we have increased the size and scope to make this event truly different than any other festival. With the addition of Home Brewers this year, we think OBF will be better than ever. Supporting and promoting local live music is also important in taking this festival to the next level. Hi-Fi Hangover and Lemon Fresh Day, two of Omaha’s premier party bands will be playing all night long” said Mike Newlin, General Manager at Horsemen’s Park.

General Admission prices are $35.00 advance purchase and $40.00 the day of the event. VIP tickets are $65.00 and normally sell out in advance. VIP ticket holders receive early access to the festival at 3pm, VIP catered tent and VIP Parking Pass.

You must be 21+ with a valid ID to enter. No outside food or drink allowed (exception: water bottles and pretzel necklaces). No pets.
