TORONTO — Organizers say a scheduling conflict with the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), has forced them to change the date for this year’s Toronto festival of beer.
Now in its 18th year, the beverage festival will take place July 27 to 29 on the CNE grounds, with extended opening hours each day.
Billed as Canada’s premier beer festival, the weekend event celebrates beer culture with more than 100 brands featured on site. The annual festival includes several beer-tastings, a southern barbecue — with grilling demonstrations by TV personalities — and live entertainment from Big Wreck, Hollerado, Kreesha Turner among others. Brewmasters will be available to discuss their craft. Committed to supporting the Ontario Craft Brewers, the festival has steadily increased the selection of craft beer available at the festival.
In previous years, the festival has attracted 30,000 attendees, 60 exhibitors and 120 different beers. Learn more here.
