Drinks & FOOD

BRAND NEW LOCATION

June 13-23 @ Fringe Courtyard, 67 Nicholas St.

Five years ago we said so long to our beloved beer tent, but we are proud to announce we have found a permanent home! The festival hub will be located in the newly renovated SAW Courtyard at 67 Nicholas St., serving up Dominion City beer and Top Shelf cocktails.

It is THE place to meet friends old & new, grab a drink and a bite to eat, share stories and ask “What have you seen? What should I see?”

In addition, to celebrate our new home we are bringing back our free programming series in full force! See below for events and schedule (more to come as we get closer to the festival).
