Frequently Asked Questions

If the event is FREE, why do I need a ticket to attend?

Tickets are needed to attend so that we can have a better idea how many people to expect. After all, we have to make sure we have enough "brats", right? We also need to issue tickets out of legal and insurance reasons.

Please make sure you print off your tickets at home , and bring them with you.

Children under 6, accompanied by an adult, don't need a ticket to attend.

FREE Tickets are available online at

Where is Beers, Brats and Beetles located?

The festival is located in Santa Clarita, 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. The festival will take place behind Santa Clarita’s very own Wolf Creek Brewery, located in the Southern California Innovation Park (previously Mann BioMed Park).

What is a Spiegeltent?

Around 1900, Spiegeltents (a/k/a mirror tents) were built in Belgium to be used as traveling dance halls. The numerous mirrors (a/k/a spiegels) in the interior of the tent, made it possible to make discreet eye contact with other visitors. The mirror tents were the environment of night owls, heartbreakers and dream chasers. Spiegeltents were legendary, and are a symbol of the wild fin-de-siecle nightlife. Today, very few of these unique tents have survived the test of time. “Cristal Palace”, the Spiegeltent that will be featured during our event, has been a monumental attraction in Germany, Belgium, and The Netherlands, since 1947. The russet-colored ambiance of mahogany, and the sparkles from the faceted mirrors provide the visitors with a taste of genuine nostalgia. Goose On The Loose Productions is proud to bring this exclusive environment for the first time ever to Southern California. We would like to express a special thank you to the Klessens family, the 4th generation Belgian spiegeltent builders, and West Coast Spiegeltents for making this happen.
