Ottawa Beer Fest is Bigger and Better Than Ever

2022 is our 9th year and we've got a great festival planned!

  • Try delicious craft beers from over 40 Craft Breweries from Ontario and beyond
  • Quench your thirst for knowledge at Beer School
  • Enjoy fantastic foods from some of Ottawa’s best eateries, 
  • Sign up for the incredibly fun 5K Craft Beer Run/Walk where you get a cold beer and cool swag when you finish. Plus, it’s the only way to score a full weekend pass to the festival!
  • Test your skills at Beer Fest Beer Pong or have a good time with the games and activities on site

If craft beer isn’t your thing, no problem! There are other delicious things to try:

  • Imported European Beers
  • Domestic Beers
  • Specialty Beers
  • Craft ciders, coolers, and spirits from across Ontario
  • ...and we even have some wine, even though it's a beer festival!

Who Can Attend?

This is an age 19+ event. No children or pets are allowed on site during the festival. Vested service animals are, however, absolutely welcome.




Please always drink responsibly, and never drink and drive!
