HarpoonFest FAQs

When is HarpoonFest Festival?

  • Saturday, May 21st from 12PM – 7PM, Doors Close at 5:30PM
How can I purchase tickets?

We highly recommend pre-purchasing your tickets (especially for Saturday). Tickets are coming soon!

Day of tickets will be available only if the festival does not sell out. You will still need to pre-purchase the ticket before coming into the Festival. Tickets are valid during the entire entrance operating hours.

You are able to transfer a ticket to a friend! Just forward them the ticket – no need to worry about calling us or changing the name on the ticket, as we will be scanning people in and the name on the ticket does not have to match the name on the ID.

Can I go to the Festival if I don’t have a pre-purchased ticket?

YES – You can pay when you arrive through our on-line ticketing platform. BUT – If the event sells out, then “day of” tickets may not be available. You may have to wait in line if a line exists.

How much does it cost?

Friday Admission +1 Drink Ticket $30 (+ Eventbrite fees), Friday Admission +3 Drink Tickets $45 (+ Eventbrite fees)

Saturday Admission +1 Drink Ticket $35 (+ Eventbrite fees), Saturday Admission +3 Drink Tickets $50 (+ Eventbrite fees)

Pay at the door admission charge is $35 which includes your first beer and a souvenir cup.

I am under 21. Can I still attend?

No! HarpoonFest is strictly 21+ with a valid ID. No dogs or children allowed.

What should I expect if I attend HarpoonFest?
  • HarpoonFest is very much a music festival vibe! We have live music from some of Boston’s hottest up and coming bands.

  • Delicious food sold by local Food Trucks and Caterers.
What should I wear?
