This is the first year of an expansion for the fundraising event, which was formerly known as The Whisky & Liquor Festival.

Tickets for the event are $80 per person from Aug. 25 through Sept. 28, discounted early-bird tickets are available for $60 until Aug. 24 and the price jumps to $100 at the door.
