After another successful year, we are pleased to announce that our grants window is now open!
Head over to the grants page to find out how your organisation can benefit from our charitable fund. The festival is run solely to raise money for this purpose (well, we also like putting on a good day). We want to give away every penny of profit, so please spread the word if you know of other groups who could benefit.
In 1997, 13 Charlburians put on a beer festival to raise money for the local primary school. Back then they sold 1,000 pints in a venue limited to 180 visitors.
In 2023, two an a half decades later, we celebrated our 25th festival. We had over 6,000 pints of ale, craft beer, and cider. We saw over 2,000 people come through our gates.
It was an unmissable day, suitable for all the family. We're sorry we have to wait until June 2024 for the next one!
Charlbury Beer Festival is run to raise money for good causes. We need the help of our sponsors to make that possible. If you'd like to be part of a the UK's biggest one day independent beer festival, raising money for great causes, please visit our sponsors page.
