This year’s one-day event taking place on May 11 is bigger and better as more than 40 breweries and cideries from across the province and eight food trucks will be in attendance.

“We’re thrilled to bring Beer Fest back to City Park for another year of celebration,” said Kurt Jory, co-owner of Thick as Thieves Entertainment. “This event is a fantastic opportunity for beer and cider lovers to discover and appreciate the incredible talent within the brewing community. We’re proud to showcase the diverse flavors and styles that make our region’s beer scene truly exceptional.”

Local DJ’s will also be performing music throughout the day.

“This isn’t your typical beer fest,” added Mitch Carefoot, co-owner of Thick as Thieves Entertainment. “This is a summer kick-off party that has become a celebration of community, flavor, and the artistry behind every brew. This event brings people together to explore the rich flavors crafted by passionate brewers, fostering a sense of camaraderie and appreciation for the diverse world of craft beer. With its picturesque setting, live music, and food offerings, this Beer Fest transcends a traditional beer tasting, transforming into an unforgettable experience where memories are brewed, one sip at a time.”
