WHEN DO TICKETS GO ON SALE?
HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS?
CAN YOU PURCHASE TICKETS AT THE DOOR?
Maybe, but we expect to sell out, so don't take the chance!
Where is the event located?
The Hog & Barrel Festival will take place at The Old Cigar Warehouse, a historic venue located at 912 S. Main Street in Downtown Greenville. You can find a map of the venue on the homepage of this website. Most of the festival is outdoors, so check the weather and dress accordingly!
How old do you have to be to attend?
All attendees, competitors, and staff at this event will be 21 years or older. Even if you have purchased a ticket, be prepared to show your ID when you arrive! If you don't have your ID with you, you won't be able to enter.
Where should we park?
There will be parking available at nearby lots for $5-$10, or you can look for street parking. You can also park for free at the County Square, just a short walk away. Check-in will start 30 minutes before each session.
Who do I contact for questions if I'm competing?
How many drinks do I get? Is there a cash bar?
All ticket holders will get their fair share of bourbon, cocktails, beer, and wine! You can keep your cash at home, all beverage are included in your ticket price. We encourage everyone in attendance to enjoy responsibly–intoxicated individuals will be asked to leave by event security.
What kind of items are not allowed at the event?
For the safety and security of our guests, the following items are NOT allowed in. We will have security on-site conducting bag searches when you arrive:
- Weapons of any kind, including knives, handguns or blunt objects.
- Any liquids, including flasks, coolers, mini bottles, etc.

- No kiddos! Seriously, this event is 21 and up only, that includes no infants.
- No illegal or narcotic substances or paraphernalia. Sorry, no doobies on site please.
- No smoking or vaping on-site.
Can I bring my dog?
We love our furry friends, but you will need to leave Fido at home for this event. Our footprint doesn't allow enough room for animals to hang out safely. Working service animals are permitted.
Can I bring a chair?
Due to layout restrictions, we ask that you leave chairs and blankets at home. We do have plenty of seating available throughout the event. If you get a VIP or Priority ticket, you'll get in the gates early and can snag a table for your group.
Do you really mean unlimited food?
We have a ton of restaurants on board, so as long as they have food, we'll be serving. Please understand that while our intention is not to run out, it may happen. Get here as early as you can!
I bought a ticket and now I can't come, can I get a refund?
What if I have dietary restrictions? are there vegetarian options?
Since we cannot restrict the types of dishes or cocktail recipes created by our participating chefs and bartenders, we can't guarantee specific dietary restrictions. Many of the chefs do have the capability of providing gluten-free or vegetarian options upon request. We will allow those with dietary restrictions to bring their own food into the event if necessary.
I don't drink alcohol, can I get a discount on my ticket?
Due to the limited availability of tickets, we are unable to offer discounts for those who do not wish to drink alcohol. We will, however, have mocktails available at the bar, so you can still partake in some tasty beverages!
I'm traveling from out of town. Where should I stay?
We recommend you stay at our Official Hotel Partner - Homewood Suites. Located just steps from Old Cigar Warehouse, a stay in their beautiful rooms and suites will ensure you are well rested and ready for the bourbon action! Festival attendees get a special room rate of $219 a night with free parking and breakfast included.
are masks required at this event?
We are currently planning for a full-capacity event, and masks will not be required. Should the CDC change their recommendations before the event, the festival will reevaluate.
What should i wear?
This event is festival casual. Boots, jeans, sweaters are all ok! Keep in mind most of the festival is outdoors, so layer accordingly.
Are you still taking vendors?
