As we prepare to open California’s Great America when it’s safe to do so, we have decided to postpone this special event until 2021.
Red, White & Brews is a hometown celebration of Americana food and fun. California's Great America's Hometown Square comes to life with live entertainment, gourmet food and locally-sourced beer, and games and activities for the whole family. More than a beer and barbecue festival, this is summer fun as it was intended: an amusement park event with larger than life games and activities for kids, plus great live music and a fireworks finale! Those 21 and older can climb aboard the San Jose Beer Bike for a pedal-powered tour around Hometown Square that allows you to sip during the trip (purchase required).
Sample savory and innovative small plate BBQ items include smoked brisket and corn bread, Asian shredded chicken on crispy wontons, spicy chicken wings and more. Plus, enjoy delicious desserts with a hometown twist—like apple pie funnel cakes, berry tarts, peanut butter mousse cake and a savory pulled pork funnel cake!
Locally Sourced Brews
Red, White & Brews will feature renowned and niche microbreweries from throughout Northern California, like Almanac, North Coast Brewery, Anchor Brewing, 21st Amendment, Anderson Valley Brewing Co., Sierra Nevada and more. Wine pouring options will include more than a dozen varities like J. Lohr, Bonny Doon, Bokisch and Jason Stephens.
Hometown Square will be brimming with entertainment for the whole family, like over-sized board games, balloon animals, face painting and visits from the friendly Mayor of Hometown Square. Plus, giant Adirondack chairs and other larger-than-life photo ops will serve as the perfect backdrop for memorable pictures.
Live, Local Entertainment
Visit the outdoor stage in front of the Great America Theater for continuous live performances by Bay Area bands throughout the day. From upbeat country to retro 80s pop, the live entertainment will have you dancing. In the gazebo, two dueling pianos will have everyone singing the hits!
San Jose Beer Bike
With the purchase of a beer and wine tasting card, adults 21 and older can take a ride on the San Jose Beer Bike at no charge! Groups of up to 12 guests climb aboard this traveling pub for a pedal-powered tour of Great America, while sipping their locally sourced beer or wine!
