WHAT IF IT RAINS

Ballpark Ale Fest is a rain or shine event. However, in the event of inclement weather due to high winds and/or lightning, the fest may be temporarily postponed until the storm has passed and the facility has been deemed safe to enter. Therefore, the start time is subject to change based on weather conditions. Join our Facebook or Twitter feeds for continuous updates.
