Great Canadian Beer Festival

Held outdoors in Victoria at Royal Athletic Park on the Friday and Saturday after Labour Day every September, the Great Canadian Beer Festival has been going strong since 1993.

Back then, GCBF featured 70 beers from 23 breweries from Canada and the Pacific Northwest, but today it hosts more than 60 breweries for 4500 or so attendees each day. This is a bucket-list event for beer lovers, and tickets usually sell out soon after they go on sale in July.
