The Windsor Craft Beer Festival is celebrating seven years on October 18th to 19th, 2019 at Willistead Park with craft brewers from across the province, including Windsor Essex, participating.

“We have a lineup of brewers with a few old favourites and a few new and exciting breweries,” explains Adriano Ciotoli, one of the festival organizers and co-owner of WindsorEats. “Brewers are bringing special one-off brews that can only be tasted at this event.”

Since the festival began seven years ago, the craft beer scene in Windsor Essex has grown significantly. When the festival first opened its gates seven years ago there was only one craft brewer in the region. The festival helped bring a sense of excitement to the craft beer scene and has help foster economic growth in the industry.

New to the festival this year, Muskoka Brewery is bringing one of their Moonlight Kettle Series, the GhoST-out. A white stout, it is a one-off limited edition beer created through a competition at the brewery.

Also, back by increasing popular demand is the Detroit Party Marching Band. The Detroit Party Marching Band is a guerilla band from Detroit, Michigan often appearing at events unexpectedly. Its repertoire is a mix of Balkan and Balkan-inspired songs, and modern pop and R&B rearranged for brass, usually by the members themselves. Rather than using a stage the band immerses themselves into the crowd allowing participants to be a party of the energy. They have been a staple at the Windsor Craft Beer Festival for the past six years and are always a highly requested and anticipated act.

Tickets for the event can be purchased at
