Best Fest 2017 is sure to be the 21+ event of the year. Performances by J-Wall, Frank White, and Ryan Brown will bring life and excitement to the celebration. The event’s dress code is ‘dressy casual’. So men lay out your best button down, and ladies, pick out your favorite dress. Now,  get your tickets before they run out!

Note that a portion of the ticket sales of this much-awaited event will be donated to the Life is Good Kids Foundation, which is set on building a better world for all kids. This organization uses the power of optimism to help kids heal- especially those that suffer from ACEs (adverse childhood experiences). So, know that you are not just attending a fun event, you are contributing largely to a good cause.

In addition to general admission tickets, VIP passes are available and include access to the VIP lounge and private bar. VIP ticket-holders will be able to enter exclusive giveaways and receive delicious food from celebrity chefs.
