You’ll find a dozen exhibitors offering a selection of gourmet products including hot sauces, jerky, freeze-dried candies and fudge, as well as six food trucks offering a variety of menus including burgers, poutines, beaver tails, crêpes and waffles. Also on the program: 15 beer-focused exhibitors and a dozen more showcasing drinks such as mead, cocktails, botanical beverages, spirits and bubble teas. And that’s just a taste of what’s in store! Take a peek at the list of exhibitors to get your mouth watering in anticipation of the festival.

Bring the whole family!

While food, beer and drinks will appeal mainly to parents, there are plenty of activities for kids, so the whole family can enjoy the festival together! Zone Ludique L’Emprise will feature a variety of escape and board games, while the Zone Famille promises animation and giant games – and don’t miss your chance to hang out with Kiro the Clown on Saturday afternoon! We bet you’ll have tons of family fun playing a unique game where cornhole meets basketball or keeping a giant-sized Jenga tower from tumbling down! The relaxing Zone Détente will also be set up to help you unwind between activities. What’s even better is that admission to the festival is free for kids ages 5 and under, and offered at a reduced price for kids ages 6 to 17!
