Folkfest is committed to hosting a conscientious family event. With the partnership of Great Western Brewing Company, we have successfully implemented a wristband program to ensure that alcoholic beverages are not served to and consumed by minors. The purpose of this safeguard program is to ensure that alcohol related activities are conducted with integrity and in a socially responsible manner.
Using SLGA’s Check 25 Identification standards as a guideline; anyone who appears to be under the age of 25 years must show government-issued photo identification with a birth date. Upon presenting proper identification, the patron will receive a Folkfest/Great Western wristband to identify that they are of legal age to purchase and consume liquor.
It is required that patrons carry their ID at all times. Additionally, Folkfest reserves the right to request ID at any time while in attendance at the festival.
