December 3rd - December 7th, 2014 | Pioneer Courthouse Square | Portland, Oregon

The Holiday Ale Festival is proud to encourage responsible drinking by offering complimentary hand-crafted Crater Lake Rootbeer for designated drivers. During the festival, we offer a number of fundraising opportunities for our charity of choice, the Children's Cancer Association.

Cheers for Charity

Cheers for Charity

The Holiday Ale Festival is proud to support the Children's Cancer Association and sincerely appreciate all of our patrons that help to support them as well. This year, we have three opportunities to help provide support for this worth-while charity.

The Children's Cancer Association is a not-for-profit organization based in Portland that works to positively impact the care and quality of life for seriously ill children and teens with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses throughout Oregon and the United States.

The Holiday Ale Festival and the Children's Cancer Association thank you for your support of their wonderful organization. For more information, visit:

Coat/Bag Check

We want your visit to be as comfortable as possible. Don't want to lug that heavy coat or shoulder bag around? Don't waste time going home first! This year we're proud to announce that we now have a bigger coat/bag check available. The cost of checking each item is just $2, with $1 going directly to the Children's Cancer Association.

Crater Lake Rootbeer Donations

As always, for those designated drivers, the Holiday Ale Festival provides complimentary handcrafted Crater Lake Rootbeer. While the rootbeer is free of charge, "tips" in the form of donations are graciously accepted for the Children's Cancer Association. 100% of all money raised from rootbeer donations will be rounded up to the next hundred dollar increment and then matched by the Holiday Ale Festival.
