Great Canadian Beer Festival: Plan Your Weekend Getaway

Looking to plan a weekend vacation? Why not make Victoria, BC your destination this September 6th & 7th with Canada’s oldest beer festival – the Great Canadian Beer Festival!

Victoria, BC is the cradle of the “craft beer revolution,” home to Canada’s first brewpub and some of British Columbia’s most popular breweries. Visionary trailblazers nurtured craft beer here alongside the local food movement, and today BC’s capital city is home to some of the country’s best restaurants, breweries and beer festivals!

Sip, savour, experience and explore everything Victoria has to offer this September at Great Canadian Beer Festival!

About The Great Canadian Beer Festival

This year’s festival will feature a diverse range of more than 75 craft breweries from British Columbia (and beyond!) along with local cideries and food trucks.

The BC Ale Trail-er will also be on-site serving a selection of beers from breweries across BC. Expect an expanded array of breweries from across Canada to be announced in early July.

Food Trucks include Ali Baba, Deadbeetz, Greek on the Street, L’Authentique, Mama Rosies, Taco Justice, Roast, and more to be announced!
