What if this year, during your long Labor Day weekend, you discovered the most important craft beer festival in Quebec?

Where ? Chambly, QC

When? 1-4 Sept 2023

Why? Because everyone is going, it is huge, and the beer menu is insane

Since 2002, the Bières et Saveurs de Chambly festival has been much more than just an ordinary beer festival. It’s an immersive experience whose main mission is to promote and support local microbreweries, wineries, cideries and producers.

A relaxed, family atmosphere awaits you.

You’ll be able to sample craft beers, ciders, meads and wines from over 110 exhibitors, while feasting on a delicious selection of food from guest foodtrucks.

Concerts, comedy shows and beer talks are also on offer throughout the 4-day festival. And for families, the Family Area offers free activities for children, including face painting, entertainment and inflatable games.

As if beer and local gastronomy weren’t enough, the festival is also located in a unique historic setting, the Fort Chambly, a French fort dating from 1711 and overlooking the Richelieu River. So you can enjoy a good beer while admiring an exceptional site.

The Festival Bières et Saveurs de Chambly is a must-attend event for anyone interested in learning more about beer, local gastronomy and the region’s fascinating history. And the organization will be celebrating its twentieth anniversary, so don’t miss this unique opportunity for a memorable experience!

See you at Fort-Chambly from Friday, September 1 to Monday, September 4.
