Tickets: Tickets go on sale Tuesday August 7th at 10:00am sharp. Tickets are $120 (+ applicable tax and service fees) per session, and will be sold exclusively online through our website. 750 tickets per session will be released. This year we are running Witchstock without a token system. The ticket price includes all beer you wish to sample (as long as you are drinking responsibly) as well as a custom Witchstock 2018 glass and Witchstock 2018 sticker.
See “Getting there and back” below for information on Designated Driver/Non-Drinking tickets. Tickets are non-refundable.
The beer line up: A list hasn’t been finalized at this point, but it’s safe to say you can expect to see a solid selection of beers from each brewery, some of which have yet to be poured in Canada, or maybe ever… You can also expect a number of special releases in our on-site retail shop. Any special retail releases will be exclusively available to festival attendees on the day of the festival. Any remaining stock of special retail releases will be released in the days after the festival.
The merch: Limited edition t-shirts and posters will be available for pre-order when purchasing your ticket. A very small number of t-shirts and screen printed posters will be available on site the day of the festival. All posters and t-shirts sold out quickly last year, so to avoid disappointment we would strongly suggest taking advantage of the pre-order opportunity.
The food: Local food vendors will be keeping you fed (please eat!). Vendors will be accepting cash and/or card. There will be an ATM
Getting there and back: Parking is extremely limited in the area, and we have no onsite parking, so please, do not drive! A FREE shuttle bus will be leaving Lawrence West Station for Hafis Rd. starting at 10:45am, and will go continuously until the last person has left the second session at Hafis Rd. The bus will be leaving Lawrence West Station approximately every 20 minutes. Alternatively, the TTC bus leaves Lawrence West Station every 5 mins and drops off at Lawrence & Benton. The brewery is only a 5 min walk from there (10 minutes, if you’re moseying). Volunteers will be at Lawrence West Station to provide you with shuttle and transit information. Anyone parking in unauthorized parking areas runs the risk of being towed. Please take advantage of the transportation services available to you.
Despite the above we have a had a few requests for Designated Driver/Non-Drinking tickets. If you need to be a designated driver you can purchase a Designated Driver/Non-Drinking ticket for $40 (plus applicable taxes and service fees). Please note anyone found drinking beer with this type of ticket will be asked to leave the festival.
Tickets are still on sale. Please scroll to the bottom of the page to purchase.
