The spectacle of caffeinated and fermented wonders that is our Annual Carnival of Caffeination makes its triumphant return as we turn San Diego’s Broadway Pier in to a seaside playground of caffeinated magic, rare & delicious beers, tasty cuisine, and aerial high-fiving with some of the world's most formidable brewers & roasters.

On hand will be a jaw-dropping arsenal of dark, coffee-centric, and barrel-aged beers alongside a king’s ransom of dazzling coffee-creations from some of the most boss-level roasters in the universe. Whether you’re a beer or coffee fan, prepare for a day of pure bliss. If you’re both, prepare for nirvanic levels of sensory pleasure.

We'll have a selection of some of the most choice food trucks in the game on-hand offering a treasure trove of culinary delights (including vegan options). We’ll also have water stations and a stunning array of the sauciest merch you've ever laid eyes on.

All profits from this wonderland of beverage-craft will go to BikeSD, a non-profit at the forefront of making San Diego a better, more sustainable place to ride.

Festival Tee

All Sizes: $20

We're not saying this is the sexiest festival tee ever made, but--actually, yes. Yes, we're saying that, because it frickin' is. Not sorry. We won’t be ordering many extras, so if you want one of these spectacles of apparel design, pre-ordering is highly recommended.

  • Ride Your Bike

    The kind folks at BikeSD will be running a bike valet right in front of the festival! Ride your bike right up to the front, and someone else will do the hard work of keeping it safe for you. That's pretty freakin' cool if we do say so ourselves.

  • Trolley & Amtrak

    This is a map of the trolley. What's super rad is that there is a stop right near the Broadway Pier, making this option one of the most convenient transportation options. Coming from North County? Take the Amtrak into Santa Fe Depot! Hazzah!
