Great Canadian Beer Festival

The line-up is set and the tickets are on sale.

The Great Canadian Beer Festival will return to Royal Athletic Park in Victoria, BC, on Friday, September 6 and Saturday, September 7, 2019. This year’s festival is the 27th annual GCBF — the first year under the new management of the Victoria Beer Society following the handover from the original founders who retired last fall.

“We are so excited to have this opportunity to put a fresh spin on Canada’s longest-running craft beer festival,” says Joe Wiebe, a co-founder and spokesperson for the Victoria Beer Society. “The lineup of breweries will be better than ever, including many coming from across Canada.”

Up to 4,500 people are expected to attend this celebration of craft beer each day. This year’s festival will feature a diverse range of more than 60 craft breweries from British Columbia along with local cideries and food trucks. The BC Ale Trail-er will also be on-site serving a selection of beers from breweries that are unable to make the trip to Victoria. Expect an expanded array of breweries from across Canada to be announced in late June.

Discounted Early Bird Tickets for Victoria Beer Society members will go on sale Tuesday,
June 18. VBS members can purchase tickets before everyone else and receive a 25% discount on Single Day Friday & Saturday Tickets. Public on-sale begins Wednesday, July 3, including both Single Day Tickets along with new Friday & Saturday Weekend Passes.

Tickets are still available through but, as is usual with this event, go fast.
