This is Orleans’ only festival celebrating craft beer!

Thursday, June 7th, 3:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Friday, June 8th, 3:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Saturday June 9th, 2:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Remember last year? We stuck by our tagline of BEER, FOOD, MUSIC, FRIENDS. And from all of the feedback so far, it seems it was a slam dunk. And if you’re asking yourself how are they going to improve on last year’s amazing inaugural Orléans Craft Beer Festival? Um, the formula is really simple. More beer. More food. More music. More friends.

We are very HOPpy to announce that the second annual Orléans Craft Beer Festival will once again take place outdoors at Centrum Plaza from June 7th to 9th, 2018. The Orléans Craft Beer Festival will bring together even more great craft breweries, local food artisans and some fantastic music to the east end of the city! Craft beer not your thing? Don’t worry, we have a wine and spirits booth as well!

This outdoor festival goes off rain or shine! We’ve went out of our way to reserve a few more tents this year and much of the grounds will be covered, including the BEER GARDENS and EATING AREA! All of the best local taps and apps under the big tent! Good old fashioned east end street party! That’s right…they’ve closed the street for us!

Get Direction


Besides the respect and envy of your family and friends it gets you through the gates to the best party in the east end of the city! Once through the gates, you will get access to a variety of awesome craft breweries' finest beer, fantastic food, great live music! And with a free token at the gate, your first drink is on us!
There will be tokens available for purchase immediately when you enter the festival grounds. Each token is $2. We recommend you bring cash to purchase your tokens to keep the lines moving quickly.

Beer vendors will have $2 (4oz), $4 (8oz), and $6 (14oz) options available. Food vendors will also have a number of dishes available a different price/token points.
We are serving alcohol and therefore, keep the kids at home for everyone sake. No one under the age of 19 will be allowed access to the festival.
Yes, Joe Smith... if that's your real name... you need ID to get into the event grounds! No exceptions!
Yes, you will have access to an ATM machine.
Yes, there is. Parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. And if you don't have a designated driver, it's exactly where your car should stay until the next morning. Parked. Period. Actually, we would prefer if you took a cab, Uber, bus, or simply be dropped off!
Like we've said before, if you've been drinking, you definitely shouldn't be driving. There are several options available, including public transit, UBER, taxi, or through a designated driver. If you need help at the end of the night, please check in with one of volunteers and we would be happy to help you find a safe way home.
Unless it’s a service dog, we would please ask that you keep your pets at home. Thanks!
By-law does not allow smoking in outdoor public areas. Smoking will only be allowed off the Centrum Plaza grounds. Please speak to any one of our volunteers and they can help point out where to go to smoke.
You will receive a wristband upon entry and you may come and go as you wish when you show your wristband upon re-entry. You will, however, have to wait in line if there is one. Do not remove your wristband once inside the festival.
Yes! We have actually partnered with the Holiday Inn Express Orleans to offer you a discount of 25% off your stay at the hotel and 25% off the price of your tickets for any one of the festival sessions! Best part is that the hotel is literally a minute walk to the festival. There are a limited number of rooms available, so call The Holiday Inn Express and reserve your room today and enjoy the 25% discount on us!
All good things come to those who wait...the saying applies for great craft beer! We've done our best to ensure we have a good ratio of beer booths to beer drinkers!
No. Please don't try to bring in items like this. We give you a glass at the door. The beer is served cold. If you think your 4 ounce sample is going to get warm before you down it...well maybe this isn't really the right event for you. Chairs and umbrellas...well, we have a big tent and some picnic tables! Once again, we're really taking all of the thinking out of the equation here.
C'mon... you really can't be asking this question can you? Apart from the fact that it's illegal, we are serving the best beer and food that our city offers. And you want to bring in your own? Nope. Nada. No way. If you try and you get caught, you will be asked to leave immediately. While the rest of the people having fun are yelling shame in unison. And trying to come back disguised with a mustache won't work Bobby Valentine.
No rain date needed. We have you covered! Literally! We will have several tents! Enough room for everybody!
Um. No. We have to respect bylaw if we want to continue to make this an annual event.
You can refund your ticket online up to seven days prior to the festival.
You can send us an email to info@orleansfestivals.ca.
