Sociable Cider Werks and 89.3 The Current present…FREAK FEST!

Hosted by Jill Riley of Oake & Riley in the Morning

This party will be as unusual, abnormal, outlandish, and unconventional as we are. We promise it will make for one downright bizarre Sunday (in the best way), and will be one wacky summer event you won’t want to miss. We’re inviting the freaky, funky and downright fun folks to party with us on Sunday, August 18th!

Event goes on rain or shine, but let’s hope for the shine!
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Event is free to attend and all ages are welcome! However, if you are 21+ and plan to enjoy a tasty beverage then please bring your ID and $5 cash for drinking wristbands (in addition to cash to purchase the beverage itself).

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Bike corrals will be available on-site. Sociable has available parking spots but they will fill up quickly. If you drive to the event, be smart and get a ride home through Uber, Lyft, Metro Transit or a friend. We promise we won’t tow your car the next day, or the next day or the day after that.
