What is Sip & Stroll and How Does it Work During Best.Weekend.Ever.?

Sip & Stroll is a new element to our events and replaces our usual beer garden. Adults aged 21+ can purchase a beer, wine or cocktail at a participating brewery, cidery, or restaurant and enjoy it while strolling within three separate sections of downtown.


This activity will create more space for people to spread out, enjoy the entertainment available downtown, and support local businesses that suffered a difficult financial year in 2020.


HDR is collaborating closely with the Harrisonburg Police Department and ABC to develop Sip & Stoll zones and a security plan to introduce this new activity to the community safely.


Show your ID to receive a free wristband from the HDR info booth or a participating establishment.

Sip & Stroll drinks are served at each establishment in plastic cups with their logo on them. You may not bring your own alcohol into the event.

While you may purchase alcohol in bottles, cans, or growlers downtown, they must remain sealed and cannot be used to refill Sip & Stroll cups or be consumed during the event.

Enjoy your drink within the zone you purchased it in. You must finish your drink before entering another establishment, entering a different zone, or leaving the event.

Enjoy festival music, food, and activities but do not overindulge. Arrange for a designated driver.

Last call will be at 8 PM. Drinks must be finished and cups discarded by 8:30 PM.
