Calling all fans of bud and brew! On Thursday, April 20, Blue Point Brewing Company will host its 3rd annual Shakedown on Main Street—a music and arts festival that bridges the gap between beer and the ever-growing recreational cannabis industry—at its facility in Patchogue. The event will feature a performance by The Expendables, a West Coast-based reggae rock band, food, beer, art demos, glass blowing, oysters, and so much more. Is it any wonder that Shakedown on Main Street is already being called ‘the dankest party on the East Coast’?
Food vendors will include longtime Edible favorites, such as Chiddy’s Cheesesteaks, Island Empanadas, All American Wontons, Blue Point Truck, Bobbique, and more. Attendees can also look forward to pint- and puff-friendly activities, such as a skate demo, an interactive art wall, claw machines, a ferris wheel, and more.
And since this event is hosted by Blue Point Brewing Company, there will, of course, be outstanding beer on hand, as well.
Shakedown on Main Street will kick off at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, with the festivities winding down at 9:00 p.m. Attendees are welcome to enter the party at any time from 3:00 p.m. on.
General admission tickets are $50.00 per person and include entry to all festivities. VIP tickets are also available for $113.04 per person, including fees, and include the following perks: a dedicated VIP entrance, access to a stage-side viewing area and VIP lounge, unlimited beer samples, an exclusive swag fanny pack bag, 1 complimentary parking lot grilled cheese, and 1 complimentary ferris wheel ride.
If you’re really in the mood to plunk down and party, ‘High Roller’ tickets are also available for $188.64 per person, including fees, and include the following: early admission at 2:30 p.m., guaranteed parking in the Blue Point lot, unlimited beer, a meet and greet with headliner The Expendables, a Toasted Lager sampling glass, a Shakedown-branded Silipint cup, a Blue Point string backpack, trinkets, access to a stage-side VIP area and VIP lounge, free unlimited ferris wheel rides, and free unlimited grilled cheese sandwiches.
