This was found on the Dallas Beer Festival’s web page Tuesday afternoon:
Hello fellow beer fan,
Unfortunately, we have notify everyone that the Dallas Beer Festival will be postponed indefinitely.
We’ve done our best to provide incredible craft beer, entertainment, and everything else a great festival brings. You’ve seen other large-scale beer events in Dallas in the last year, which have been sponsored by large-scale breweries you’re familiar with. As avid craft beer fans, we chose to create this festival without these sponsors. However, ticket sales have been extremely slow, and in recent days, it has become increasingly apparent that the financial risk is just too high for us to take. We’d really like to get this right the first time around, but we just haven’t been able to generate the interest this festival needs to succeed this year.
Obviously, anyone who purchased a ticket will receive a full refund for the cost of your ticket(s). We have already contacted our ticketing company (Showclix), and your refund will post back to your account in the next 7-10 days.
We apologize for any inconvenience this has has caused, and we certainly hope to make a few adjustments and hold this festival next year. This announcement only affects the Dallas Beer Festival and not any other event that is scheduled. Thanks very much for your understanding, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Update: Pre-sales were in the 100’s.
