Langford Beer Festival

July 15th 2023
3pm – 8pm
Starlight Stadium, Langford BC

Thanks for joining us!

Returning for its second year, Langford Beer Festival is storming the field this year with some exciting new upgrades.
We are expanding our capacity (adding an extra 80,000 sqft for you to enjoy) by moving onto the field at Starlight Stadium. This means more vendors, more entrances to alleviate excessive wait times and lots of space for you to hangout as you sip on some of the best beer BC has to offer.
The festival will bring forth a curated lineup of 80+ craft beers and ciders from across BC, live music from local Westshore talent, lots of food trucks and treats plus fun new activities and games.
See you on the field!

How is Langford Beer Festival different from last year?

Welcome to Langford Beer Festival 2.0! After our inaugural year in 2022, we heard your feedback and have made some very exciting changes. First and foremost, Langford Beer Festival is moving onto the field at Starlight Stadium for a ton more room for our guests to wander and enjoy. This expansion allows us to bring in some fun entertainment while ensuring there is a lots of space on the field to walk around and minimize lines. Second, we are using two gates this year for entry, the same gates used for PFC Games, for extra fast entry to the festival. Gate A is beside Boulder House and Gate B is on the Langford Lanes side. A site map will be posted soon for a good visual representation.
