Vancouver Craft Beer & Music Festival

VCBW is back this summer with
150+ Craft Beers and Ciders, The Strumbellas, Capital Cities and a ton of
delicious food.  Exclusive Access for you…




Our Feaster Family,

Vancouver Craft Beer and Music Festival, presented by Go RVing, is returning Saturday July 8th, 2023 to the PNE. We have 100+ craft breweries and cideries confirmed, The Strumbellas and Capital Cities co- headlining and the food exhibitors are immense in both quantity and quality.  We have made so many changes this year (see below), all for the betterment of the attendees.

The biggest change is that all tickets include alcoholic beverage samples. This means you’ll just walk through our doors (with
no lines) and start tasting!




Full disclosure… we held 2 ‘Pre-Pre-Sales’ for our 2022 ticket holders. The first sold-out in 90 minutes, with the second one selling out in 75. Between the value of the ticket, as well as the major changes, VCBW is destined to sell-out quickly. Please take a look at what is planned for VCBW and be ready at 10AM Wednesday if you’d like to attend.

150+ CRAFT

The more accurate number will
be 200+ but we wanted to be conservative. There are some stellar
brands attending this year to showcase their craft including
Shaketown, Brave, Locality, 33 Acres, Humblebee and soooo many
others. In the past five days, VCBW has confirmed Angry Hen
(Kaslo), Cambium Cider (Vernon), Andina (Vancouver), Marten
(Vernon), Old Abbey (Abbotsford) and several others with more
continuously being added.












The focus for 2023 was to bring out epic talent to
light up The Stanley Park Sunsetter Stage. Between Grammy nominated
‘Capital Cities’ and multi-Juno winner ‘The Strumbellas’, the stage
is going to rock throughout the event. In addition to our 2 headliners,
BC’s own ‘Fake Shark’ will be opening the musical festivities.
