Red, White & Brews

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).
