What to expect

You’ve got your tickets… Now what?

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!


Northwest Tequila Fest is first and foremost a tasting event. Each one of our 130+ bottles of tequila and mezcal are available for you to sample! With the purchase of your General Admission ticket, you will receive 8 tasting tokens, and each token is good for one taste. 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 tokens are also good for Cocktails and Beer, which will be available throughout the festival. And if you run out of tokens, not a problem! Tokens will be available for sale throughout 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.

VIP Events, education, and more!

Stay tuned for everything that will be happening at our 2016 event!
