What to expect

We are so excited to have you at Northwest Tequila Fest 2016! For the past three years, we have been bringing the largest Tequila and Mezcal tasting to the Pacific Northwest. If this is your first time with us, welcome! Here is a little more about what you can expect when you attend our Fest to get you ready for the big weekend.

We are an indoor/outdoor event

We are changing the game a little this year – we are switching venues! The Fremont Foundry will be our home in 2016, and if you have not been in the space for the event, it is a very cool and versatile space. While it is mainly indoor, there is a courtyard and a large rooftop deck that will house our VIP lounge, so be sure to dress appropriately!*

We are also now going to be a 2 day event! We couldn’t be more excited about this change, as we have wanted to be a multi-day festival from the beginning. Having two days doesn’t just meant twice the fun, it also means that we are going to be able to do more than ever before!

What is happening Friday?

Friday night is when the party begins! We will have music, nibbles, and a Welcome Party for our Añejo level ticket holders in our VIP lounge (for more ticket information, go here) Our onsite retail shop will be open for you to purchase your favorite agave spirits tax free, and festivities start at 6pm – just in time for Happy Hour!

Friday Hours: 6pm-9pm (VIP access at 5pm for Reposado and Añejo level tickets)

What is happening Saturday?

Saturday we will keep it going with more music, food, cocktails and seminars with guest speakers! Starting this year, we will be offering educational seminars for you to check out, with a range of topics and experts to give you the skinny on all things agave. Be sure to check back here to get a schedule as we get closer to the event.

Saturday Hours: 4pm-8pm (VIP access at 3pm for Reposado and Añejo level tickets)


Northwest Tequila Fest is first and foremost a tasting event. Each one of our 130+ bottles of tequila, mezcal and sotol are available for you to sample! With the purchase of your General Admission ticket you will receive 8 tastes and 3 nibbles from Seattle area restaurants. Tastes will be .5 oz each (1/3 of a shot) and spit buckets are provided for those who are in it for the long haul. Water will be plentiful to keep hydrated, and we encourage folks to take their time and enjoy each delicious drop!

Your tastes are also good for Cocktails and Beer, which will be available throughout the festival. And if you run out of them, not a problem! You will be able to purchase more the day of the Fest.


We are excited to be partnered up with Seattle area restaurants, who have been providing tasty bites every year for us! As we get closer to the event, we will announce who will be providing food at this year’s event, along with traditional Mexican juices and sodas.

*NOTE – VIP lounge is on the rooftop, and has no handicap access*
