Fest of Ales is located in the heart of Downtown Anaheim and boasts over 40 craft breweries, food pairings, live music, and games!

Fest of Ales is back! Features include a home brew competition, unlimited craft beer tastes, unlimited gourmet food tastings, and one lucky brewery will be awarded the Mayor’s Trophy. Partial proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the non-profit organizations, The Anaheim Fall Festival and Halloween Parade, and Downtown Anaheim Association.

Sine 1923, the Anaheim Fall Festival & Halloween Parade has brought our community together to create an annual parade & festival, enjoyed by nearly 50,000 attendees each year. The Miss Anaheim Fall Festival scholarship program assists our younger generation to develop community service and leadership skills.
