VIP Package Information

Because of construction of the new scoreboards at EverBank Field, we had to get creative with use of space, especially with our judging and scoring area. So we’re looking at utilizing the Bud Zone for our judges and scoring area. Of course, that also means that we have a lot more room to use. So we’re creating a VIP package for up to 250 people.

Here’s how it will work. Each package consists of four tickets to the event, four Bud Zone passes, and a parking pass.

VIPs will be able to get out of the sun and into the Bud Zone, plus they’ll have the chance to sample from our Smoke Ring of Honor, our past winners of the event. We may also have some acoustic music and TVs on, plus a private bar. These packages are $100 each and are limited to the first 60 packages.

If you want to be placed on the VIP waiting list to be contacted before the VIP packages go on sale to the public, email us ( and we’ll let you know in advance.
