Sip & Stroll

Sip & Stroll is an element of our events that replaces the usual beer garden. Adults aged 21+ can purchase a beer, wine, or cocktails at a participating brewery, cidery, or restaurant and enjoy it while strolling 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 and purchase a $3 wristband from the HDR info booth or a participating establishment.

Proceeds from wristband sales benefit Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance and offset the cost of large community events like Winter Wonderfest.

Sip & Stroll drinks are served at each establishment in 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 event zone. You must finish your drink before leaving the event.

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

Last call will be at 7:00 PM. Drinks must be finished and cups discarded by the end of the parade.
