Anniversary Party Details

The last 10 years of business have been a dream come true for owner, John Martin, and the rest of the staff here at Confluence. We couldn’t have gotten here without the support of all of you, so to say thanks, we’re throwing the biggest party in Confluence history spanning the weekend of 10/21-10/23. We’re extending our patio into the grassy area north of the beer garden and setting up a stage for the bands. Bring a camp chair or blanket, and hang out all day!

We’ll have 7 bands, food trucks all weekend, 10 beer releases (including 4 collabs with 10 breweries that will be released as a mixed 4-pack), artist booths, on-site t-shirt printing, dunk tank, commemorative 10th anniversary glassware, and more!

Check out the schedule of events below and make plans to join us.


Fri, 10/21:

3:30-6:30: ElectroBeast
7-10: Seth Cloe and the Silver Liners
Top Bun, Peggy O’s, and Es Tas Food Trucks

The Side Garage will be here on Friday night, and you’ll be able to screen print your very own commemorative 10th Anniversary t-shirt.

818 Design will have a booth set up, so you can get a behind the scenes look at all the label designs they’ve done for us over the years. We’ll also have booths for a few of the artists that have done original pieces for our labels so everyone can meet the faces responsible for some of our most distinctive brands.


Finally, we’ve got a dunk tank coming, so warm up your arm and prepare to dunk the owners and managers 🙂
