$20 for One Ticket to the Brew & Bourbon Classic (Up to $40 Value)
On Saturday, November 17, between noon and 5 p.m., thoroughbreds' hooves stamp the ground at Laurel Park while Brew & Bourbon attendees enjoy high-end libations from some of the best seats in the house—a VIP race-viewing area. Patrons watch the races and fill up their souvenir glass with beer and bourbon as often as they please. The drinks come from brewers and small-batch distillers that include High West Distillery, Dogfish Head, and Heavy Seas. Beyond the drinks and the four-legged fun, guests can play cornhole, dance to two live bands and a hit-spinning DJ, and kick back to watch football on big-screen TVs. A mini parade of food trucks will be on hand to sell treats such as marinated kebabs from Stix and desserts from Tasha’s Cookies and Treats. Free parking is also included with the ticket.
Tysons Fall Harvest
It may be the inaugural year of Tysons Fall Harvest, but it already has the docket to rival any well-established fall festival. This family-friendly event will keep kids entertained with plenty of activities, from pony rides and petting zoos to a hay maze and pumpkin carving. Those who need to brush up on their carving skills can sit in on demonstrations from master pumpkin carvers or head to the craft corner to paint or just hug a gourd that escaped.
Even without kids in tow, adults will have plenty to do, including visiting the wine and beer garden for unlimited samples when they purchase a tasting glass, as well as shopping a marketplace with pumpkins and fall decor. They might even consider dropping by Rocknoceros's set at the live-music stage; they might be a kids' band, but their acclaim has landed them gigs at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and the Kennedy Center. A portion of the Harvest's proceeds will benefit the Spirit of Hope Children's Foundation.
