Help choose the best Fort Worth Cocktail

August 2, 2018 by  

A grand prize of $1,000 awaits the winner of the Fort Worth Craft Cocktail Festival.

Up to 1,500 attendees will select the best of what the Fort Worth community has to offer cocktail lovers. The contest will include 15 pre-selected cocktails chosen from the top bars and restaurants around the city. Every guest at the event has the chance to sample the offerings and vote for their favorite.

Included in the evening will be live music, a booth for each of the cocktails, many other frozen drinks, and a beer garden. Guests can check out the promotional products and goods offered by the street vendors and enjoy a meal or snack from one of the food trucks in attendance.

A ticket purchase also gives each guest the chance to win a trip to New Orleans. General admission tickets are good for one contest entry and VIP tickets earn two entries. The prize covers airfare and accommodations. Additional raffle tickets are $5 each.

Admission is $25 for a general admission sampling ticket and $30 for a VIP sampling ticket. VIP tickets include faster entry to the event and one additional raffle ticket. Those that do not want to sample the cocktails can enter for a $10 fee. Each sampling ticket gives the guest one voting chip to drop into the jar for their favorite cocktail. The person whose cocktail jar has the most chips at the end of the night wins.

The festival takes place on August 25 from noon until 10:00 PM at The Yard, located at 3017 Morton Street in Fort Worth. All raffle proceeds and a part of the other proceeds from the event will benefit a local charity.
