Everything You Need to Know About Whiskey Fest 2019

The annual event is returning to Philly on October 24th.

On Thursday, October 24th, Philadelphia magazine’s annual Whiskey & Fine Spirits festival returns to Lincoln Financial Field for an evening of brown liquor and so, so much food. Guests will have the opportunity to taste whiskey, scotch, bourbon, tequila, gin, rum, vodka and more, all benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Industry professionals and master distillers will be present, ready to talk us through their offerings.

Grand Tasting tickets are $115 and give you access to the main festival at 6:30 p.m. A discounted rate is available for groups of 5 or more. To avoid crowds, choose a VIP Tasting ticket, which gets you in the door at 5 p.m., for early access to tastings, food pairings, vendors tables, a $15 credit to spend at the on-site Fine Wine & Good Spirits, and more. A Designated Driver ticket is also available for those not partaking in the hard stuff. Ticket-holders under the age of 21 will not be admitted.

No one will be drinking on an empty stomach, though, with more than 20 area restaurants on site serving up snacks and bites to keep us fueled throughout the evening. For the full list of spirits, click here. A full list of restaurants is below.
