Drop what you’re doing and start planning. BC craft beer festivals are back for spring and summer 2022.
No, we’re not kidding. If you’ve been thirsting for an opportunity to finally gather with your fellow craft beer lovers again and celebrate everything this resilient industry has to offer, it’s your time to shine.
Here are the craft beer festivals on deck for spring and summer 2022.
Victoria Beer Week • Victoria
This come-back is particularly exciting. Victoria Week is returning after two years of cancellation due to COVID. In fact, COVID first arrived in Canada in the middle of 2020’s Victoria Beer Week and the final two nights had to be cancelled. 2022’s event was originally scheduled to kick off in March, but was then postponed once again because of omicron. Finally, it’s a go for April 1-9. This nine-day festival showcases BC craft breweries in a variety of awesome venues across Greater Victoria.
Revelstoke Beer Festival • Revelstoke
A beautiful resort, spring skiing, and craft beer in the mountains… What more do you need? Celebrate it all with this two-day craft beer festival at Revelstoke Mountain Resort.
Okanagan Fest of Ale • Penticton
Enjoy delicious food, local beers, great entertainment, and hopefully lots of sunshine in Okanagan Lake Park. This festival is celebrating 25 years strong!
