Your favorite fall beer festival goes virtual this year with AMP Fest: To Go! Along with our participating breweries, including Yuengling, Bike Rack Brewing Co., Hawk Moth Brewery & Beer Parlor, Bentonville Brewing, Black Apple Hard Cider and Fossil Cove Brewing Co., the Walmart AMP presents two days of socially distanced activities with proceeds supporting Walton Arts Center’s mission-critical programming.

Start by picking up your packet from the backstage parking lot at Walton Arts Center on Friday, Oct. 23 or from the Walmart AMP North parking lot on Saturday, Oct. 24. Your AMP Fest packet includes a six-pack beer carrier, sampling cups and sponsor swag. Starting at noon on Saturday, Oct. 24, you can use clues from the AMP Fest app to locate each participating brewery and retrieve the beverage selections for the sampling portion of the Virtual AMP Fest Event on Sunday, Oct. 25. From the comfort of your home, you will get to sample some great local & national beverages! The virtual event begins at 4pm and will include talk-backs with master brewers, who will give behind the scenes details about some of your favorite craft beers; a streamed live performance by The Juice and a talk back from one of our cutting-edge tech sponsors.
