Ottawa, Canada's capital city, is home to iconic federal government buildings and institution, such as the Parliament of Canada, the National Gallery of Canada, and Supreme Court of Canada to name a few.

Beau's Oktoberfest

It's not quite October yet, but "Ontario's best micro/craft brewery" can certainly do what it wants. Beau's Beer is hosting its annual Oktoberfest on September 20 and 21 at Vankleek Hill. Beau's Oktoberfest has been around for over a decade, offering Bavarian-inspired dishes from local restaurants, an assortment of craft beer and ciders, and an impressive lineup of nationally-recognized Canadian performers.


There's much to do, eat, drink, and dance to at this jam-packed celebration. Performing artists include Shad, The New Pornographers, and Jenn Grant. Activities include a sausage eating contest, 'School of Bock' for beer nerds, a homebrew competition, charity bike ride, 'Midway' carnival games, and a Kinderfest for the little ones.


This Oktoberfest festival is a nod to the Bavarian inspiration that birthed Beau's Beer and serves as the brewery's largest annual fundraising event. Don't miss out on this one-of-a-kind festival!
