In keeping with the holiday season,Ilani will have the Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony at 6 pm on Friday. Santa will be there with complimentary cookies, hot cocoa and coffee.
There will be a Retails Fashion Show sponsored by Retails in Clark County. The Fashion Show will be at 8 pm on Friday evening and at 2 pm on Saturday afternoon.
Ilani has assembled a wide array of holiday inspired ales from some of the finest breweries in Southwest Washington and the Pacific Northwest, including Stone Brewery.
Admission to Ilani Crafts & Ale Fest is free. If you want to sample the ales, you’ll need to buy a Drink Tasting Package. There will be one for Friday and one for Sessions 1 and 2 on Saturday. The Drink Tasting Package will give you 24 drink samples and a tasting glass you can use at the fest and keep.
I’ve seen online ticket brokers selling the Drink Tasting Packages for $50, $55 and $60. But we know how you can get a Drink Tasting Package here for $25. Quite a savings!
Just choose the day you want to attend:
You must be 21+ to purchase the Drink Tasting Package. And you’ll need to be prepared to have to show a valid photo ID.
