Craft Beer Festival Coming Soon
Prince George, B.C. – Beer lovers will want to hop online this coming Saturday.
That’s the day tickets for the third annual Kiwanis AleFest will be going on sale. Chair Bjorn Butow says the event continues to get bigger and better each year.
“We’re going to have about 1,200 tickets available this year. Last year we had 925 and previous to that we had 550. So it grows a little bit each year as we try to find the right size and scale relative to where we hold the event – Two Rivers Gallery.”
The festival will take place Friday January 27 and Saturday January 28. The Friday night session will run from 7:30-10:30 p.m. while the Saturday sessions go from 3:00-6:00 p.m. and from 7:30-10:30 p.m.
Tickets cost $63 a piece and include six craft beer tasting tokens, free tapas, live music from Coldsnap, and a silent auction.
So what makes this event so popular?
“I think our city is maturing and people are looking for good events to go to that are a nice night out,” says Butow. “The city is offering more opportunities for things for people to go and experience that they may not exactly do all the time.”
Tickets go on sale at 8 a.m. and can be purchased by clicking here. And if last year is any indication, he says to buy them early.
“I think you need to be on the ball. It’s almost like a concert that’s coming to town. Last year we sold-out in a week and this year we may sell-out earlier.”
