General Info

COVID-19

Bendigo On The Hop is a COVIDsafe event. Festival-goers should adhere to all current rules and guidance, such as when to wear masks, social distancing and venue capacity.

This year’s event has a strict ‘no ticket, no entry‘ policy. If you are planning to come ‘along for the ride’ with a group of festival-goers, but you yourself are do not have a ticket, you will be restricted from entry to the venues.

Our event being allowed to proceed relies on every patron being checked in and accounted for, while adhering to venue capacity numbers. Therefore, we must prioritise entry to those who have purchased a ticket.

The Hub

The Bendigo Beer hub is the place to go for any information or questions you may have on the day.

Merchandise from Bendigo On The Hop, the breweries and Bendigo Beer will also be available from the hub.

Weather

Bendigo On The Hop is a winter beer festival. You will be walking outside between venues so please dress appropriately.

Indie Beer

All the beer on offer at Bendigo On The Hop is made by Independent Breweries.

Other Drinks

Bendigo On The Hop is a beer festival. The festival beers will be the only alcoholic beverages available for purchase from the venues throughout the day.

If you or one of your group is not normally a beer drinker, we encourage you to keep an open mind. Bendigo On The Hop is about trying new things. We’re quietly confident there will be a beer to suit everyone.

Acceptable Behaviour

Patrons are required to follow venue rules. Venues have a right to refuse service to anyone in breach of these rules.

Please do not drink in the streets between venues. Bendigo has a restriction on drinking in the CBD streets and you may be fined.

This is an 18+ event. ID will be required when checking in.

Volunteers

Bendigo Beer is a volunteer run organisation. To make Bendigo On The Hop the success that it is we need a few extra hands on the day.
