Do I have to be vaccinated or wear a mask to attend Brewfest at the Ballpark? For large outdoor events, the State strongly recommends that all guests be fully vaccinated, obtain a negative COVID-19 test prior to attending events, or wear a face covering. Attendees who do not self attest vaccination status should wear face coverings. Fully vaccinated guests are not required to wear a mask to attend Brewfest at the Ballpark. Unvaccinated guests should still wear a mask. Please be aware of the risk of attending large crowded events where the vaccine status of others in attendance may be unknown, or others may not currently be eligible for vaccination, or may be immunocompromised and whose vaccine protection may be incomplete.
Any new stadium protocols I should be aware of?
Sutter Health Park is now a cashless venue! All major credit/debit cards and River Cats gift cards will be accepted as payment.
Mobile Tickets - All event tickets are now digitized! For the best experience, be sure to add your digital tickets to your mobile wallet in advance of your arrival to make your entrance experience quick and effortless! If you are attending Brewfest at the Ballpark with a group and arriving together, only one person in your group will need to have all tickets added to their mobile wallet. If you bought tickets for friends, and they're not entering the gates with you, make sure to transfer their tickets to them so they can add to their mobile wallet.
As in previous years, all guests at Sutter Health Park will pass through a metal detector to enter the stadium. Additionally, to avoid touching attendees’ personal items, Sutter Health Park is enforcing a CLEAR BAG POLICY and we ask guests to open their own bags for inspection. See below for a visual on what you can bring inside the ballpark. *note: if you forget your clear bag on event day, options will be available for purchase at our ticket office windows.
If it's raining, what happens?: Brewfest at the Ballpark is rain or shine, baby! In the event that the field is too wet, we'll bring the party to the concourse and still have the time of our lives.
I forgot my ID, what do I do?: Call a friend to bring it to you! We will be checking IDs at the gates. All guests must have a valid US Driver’s License or Photo ID and must be 21+ to enter Brewfest at the Ballpark.

I'm a VIP is there special line I get in to enter?: Heck yeah! VIPs will have a dedicated entrance (look for the signs). Avoid the General Admission line and get right in!
How do I redeem my food if I'm VIP?: Your mobile VIP ticket has your Sausage + Bottled Water redemption built right in! Visit any open storefront concession stand, or field level food location and show your ticket for scan. Once scanned, you'll get your goods! We recommend grabbing your food during the VIP hour to avoid longer food lines.
If I'm not a huge beer fan, but I still want to participate, what other alcohol options are there? There are definitely more options than just beer at Brewfest! We've got several hard kombucha brewers lined up, some breweries are featuring their own seltzers, and a few cider houses are also on board. There will be something for everyone!
Can I bring in my own food?: No outside food or drinks will be permitted inside the stadium, individual factory-sealed bottled water is permitted (your lovely pretzel necklaces are okay to come in too!)

I have my DD ticket, how do I get in?: There will be a Designated Driver Check-In area in front of the main gates. To check-in, you must show your ticket and a valid ID. Upon check-in you will be wristbanded, marked with a mark on your hand, and given your refillable souvenir cup. Designated Drivers will not be let into the stadium without having their wristband and mark on their hard, so be sure to check-in before getting in line!
