The first annual Beer-lesque & Carniv-ale Show proved to be a wonderfully weird, entertaining and delicious local food and drink event! Owning the theme of the day, local vendors dressed in their finest steampunk attire, fortune tellers and tattoo artists shared their unique talents, rockabilly musicians captivated audiences, burlesque dancing showed all they had to offer and sideshow feats wowed the crowds.
On top of the amazing sights and entertainment, Ontario craft beers and ciders filled the aisles. Summer go-to’s like Beat the Heat from Black Oak Brewing filled our glasses, while new favourites like the Lakeside Kolsh from Kenora’s Lake of the Woods Brewing were a happy discovery. Take a peek at some of our event photos below!
