Are there any stadium protocols I should be aware of?:
Sutter Health Park is a cashless venue! All major credit/debit cards, mobile payment (Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc.) and River Cats gift cards will be accepted as payment.
Mobile Tickets - All event tickets are 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.
All guests at Sutter Health Park will pass through a metal detector to enter the stadium. Sutter Health Park has a CLEAR BAG POLICY for any bags larger than 5”x8” (about the size of a half sheet of paper). 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.
