Food trucks and libations will be on hand during the show, promising a great night set against the backdrop of the gorgeous Denver skyline. Tickets to see Everyone Orchestra will be available for $15 in advance or $20 at the door for fans who arrive after 5PM on Saturday for TBW After Party with Everyone Orchestra. Fans who purchase this option will have access to the last hour of Saturday’s BAZAAR, but not to BEERFEST. Oktobergrass re-opens on Sunday at 11am for another round of BAZAAR, BEERFEST, and BANDS, including live music by Chain Station, Ginny Mules and more to be announced soon.  TheBigWonderful SuperPass Ticket is available for $39 and includes full access all weekend long to BEERFEST, BANDS, BAZAAR.

TheBigWonderful is proud to enter its fourth year showcasing a unique platform combining BEERFEST*BANDS*BAZAAR. Serving Denver Metro area families & millennials, and hosting hundreds of local artisans and small businesses, TBW and its community are strong believers in the “Buy Local” and “Leave No Trace” ethos. TheBigWonderful takes pride in gathering communities around good music, locally sourced food and drinks, and good fun. This ethos has led TheBigWonderful to partner with Colorado based non-profit Re:Vision, who cultivate thriving, resilient communities. Since 2009, Revision has helped over 800 low income families grow food in their own backyards, making it the largest community-led food access program in the country.  TheBigWonderful has also partnered with UpDIG, a certified B-Corporation, who has planted an urban farm at the festival site in Denver’s Globeville neighborhood which will be harvested just in time for Oktobergrass. The farm will contribute to the city’s urban production of local, organic, nutrient dense vegetables and herbs and UpDIG will be selling the vegetables at their farm stand at Oktobergrass - "Farm to Food Truck"! Lastly, TheBigWonderful is proud to work with Scraps, their zero-waste partner who use locally manufactured “bicycle vehicles” to make the environmental footprint of the event as minimal as possible through dedicated procurement, recycling, and composting efforts.

TheBigWonderful is also proud to partner again with Lyft for discounted ride sharing to and from its events.
