The annual Festival of Beers at Canal Park returns Sept. 21 to downtown Akron.

The beer tasting, held from 4 to 7 p.m. inside the Akron RubberDucks stadium, will showcase more than 40 breweries and feature a special Ohio section. In addition to beer, the event includes live music and food.

A brewery list has not yet been released, but tickets are on sale.

Tickets are $30 in advance, and $35 at the gate. VIP tickets, which allow people in at 3:30 p.m., are $50.

There are three ways to buy tickets: at the Canal Park box office during normal business hours (10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday), by calling the Akron RubberDucks box office at 330-253-5153, or online at www.akronrubberducks.com.
