Event Details and FAQ

What's Brass on Tap?

Brass on Tap is our most important fundraising event each season and we're thrilled to return to the beautiful Como Lakeside Pavilion at Como Park in St. Paul! We're offering a delicious dinner, a concert and an ice cream social so mark your calendars now!

If you haven't visited the Como Lakeside Pavilion you're in for a treat! There's a large stage with a completely covered seating area, so we're planning to host the event rain-or-shine, but do stay tuned to our Facebook page in the event of a cancellation due to severe weather.

How much are tickets?

Individual Adult All-Inclusive tickets are $80 for the entire event with dinner or $20 for the concert and ice cream social event only (which begins at 7:30). Kids dinner tickets are $20 or $10 for the concert and ice cream social event only.

Purchase an $80 all-inclusive per-seat ticket or table sponsorship (which is 8 total all-inclusive tickets) and you'll get the best experience for the evening, including the following:

  • One free drink ticket and Happy Hour with CSB musicians beginning at 5:30. Your all-inclusive ticket includes one free drink ticket and once you've used it up beer, wine and nonalcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the outdoor Pavilion bar.
  • A new-for-2023 delicious dinner catered by the Dock and Paddle including fresh salads, chef-carved London Broil or herb-crusted chicken and a host of yummy veggies. Check out the menu below!
  • Reserved preferred seating for the concert portion of the evening. If you purchase a table (8 seats) you can guarantee you and your crew can sit together all evening long!
  • Dessert at the ice cream sundae bar featuring Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with your choice of toppings like hot fudge, caramel sauce, crushed cookies and more!

  • A $20 Ticket for adults ($10 kids 17 and under) is also available ONLY for the concert, fundraising and ice cream social portion of the evening only. These tickets do not include dinner, a drink ticket or Happy Hour access. If you purchase a $20 ticket you may arrive at 7:00 PM in advance of the 7:30 concert.
