Friendships & Explorations Festival Refunds
As a much smaller team, with adjusted expectations and resources, we are committed to approaching decisions with greater empathy and in alignment with a now clearer sense of our vision for the future. As such, we officially announce the cancellation of the Friendships & Explorations Festival, and we will be offering refunds for all tickets. As it turns out, we were too clever by half in selling old-school physical tickets, thinking it would make things easier for attendees. However, it presents unique challenges to issuing refunds, especially this far away (now over a year) from the original event.
The deadline for submissions, either onsite or online, is Friday, 8 October 2021.
We will verify all tickets with Universe for authenticity—either physically or digitally via photo submission—prior to payout. We appreciate your patience as we do our best to make the process as accessible, reasonable, and equitable for ticket holders.
If you have questions, please email [email protected].
Our original vision for the festival was to gather as many of our friends as possible for a single celebratory weekend—and, of course, to mark a decade of the brewery. However, the milestone window has passed us by. With continuing uncertainty with travel restrictions abroad, many of our international inspirations may not be able to visit us this year. Following the last year, the idea of gathering all our friends at one time in a single place, only to have a few minutes with each of them, seems in opposition to both the goals of connection and friendship as well as to our aforementioned reflective visioning.
Do you know someone that holds tickets to this Festival? If so, please notify them that we are issuing refunds!
If you are able to visit us physically between now and 8 October, we will offer...
A full refund (including taxes) in the form of an electronic gift card for use immediately or later on, plus a $20 gift benefit for each verified ticket returned, as a token of our appreciation.
You may elect to waive your refund and make a charitable donation in that same amount ($110, plus the $20 gift card) to Circus Smirkus and its scholarship program. See details below.
Cash/credit refunds will not be offered onsite, only through the online submission form.
