The Great Canadian Beer Festival is a non-profit society created for the purpose of introducing consumers to new brews and to raise awareness of craft brewing in the local community and beyond. In its 25th year, the GCBF is the longest running, and one of the largest craft-only festivals in Canada.
The first GCBF was held in 1993 in the Victoria Conference Centre. The festival grew each year and by 2003 it moved to the Royal Athletic Park where over 8000 people attend the two day event.
TICKETS either day – $40 (includes tax)

Thinking of Volunteering?
The Liquor Control and Licensing Branch has informed us that all token takers MUST have either their SIR (Serving it Right) or a SES (Special Event Server)certificate. We have tried to appeal this but their decision remains firm. If you already have your SIR you will not need the SES certification. For any of our volunteers that wish to do the Booth Steward position, it is mandatory to have one of these certificates. The cost of the SES is $20.00 and can be completed online ( go2HR.ca/training/special-event). This certificate is valid for 5 years. We are hoping this will not deter you from volunteering again. To complete your registration please obtain your certificate as soon as possible.
