We at Toronto’s Festival of Beer love to celebrate our Fathers, and what better way to show how much you love Dad then with Good Beer, Crafty BBQ, Gourmet Fare, and Live Entertainment including the reggae styling’s of Big Sugar? Make sure to come out to TFOB’s sister event The Beach, BBQ and Brews Festival on Father’s Day weekend June 13th-15th!

This 6th Annual kick-off to Ontario Craft Beer week takes place on Father’s Day at beautiful Woodbine Park on the corner of Lakeshore and Coxwell Avenue in the heart of The Beach.

The weekend promises a good time for all including tasty suds, slow-smoked BBQ, product vendors and for all of you BBQ enthusiasts; we have our Master Chefs in the Grill Tent sharing secrets of the South throughout the weekend! On Friday June 13th, will be holding the 5th Annual Firefighter Competition where North, South, East and West Commands will compete against each other for the best steak recipe (and year-long bragging rights). If you come on the Saturday, make sure to stop by the Grilling Tent and catch Chef Ted Reader’s demos at 1pm & 3pm, along with other BBQ experts and enthusiasts, such as Tonia Wilson, Scott Tait and Chris Doepner! On Sunday, watch the CSBBQA Certified Amateur Ribber Competition and North American Ribber Competition while enjoying the Big Sugar Show – yard style and strictly roots live on the main stage at 4:20 – rejoice!

And of course, we didn’t forget about the kids at this one, they can play all day in the children’s area, complete with amusements rides, cotton candy and face painting. A hit with children young and old! Come and enjoy some quality family time with you and yours next weekend – give Dad what he really wants – BEER & BBQ!

We have a great weekend planned for your enjoyment and admission is free – yes FREE!
