Banff Craft Beer Festival

November 21 - 23, 2019

Widely considered the world's most beautiful beer festival, The Banff Craft Beer Festival takes place in Banff's Cave and Basin National Historic Site and is held each year in late November. As the only craft beer festival featuring exclusively Alberta craft brewers, treat your taste buds to delicious samples of craft beer from over 40 vendors from across the province, share stories with local brewmasters, and discover Banff's amazing food and craft drink scene! 

Top Tips: Be sure to arrive early as the first 150 guests at each session will get to experience a free Lantern Tour of the unique and historic cave! And don't miss the before and after party at the festival's official headquarters, Banff Ave Brewing Co.

Tickets on sale now.
