Nanaimo Kinsmen Beer Festival

Who doesn't love supporting local? This is an event not to be missed! Come drink some local craft beer! All proceeds will be going to the Nanaimo Kinsmen for distribution to local charities. For $28 you walk away with a 4 oz commemorative glass, 8 tasting tickets (extras are $1.50 each), plenty of food, live music and door prizes (and of course a great time with other beer lovers!)

Save the date! April 12th 6pm-9:30pm at the Nanaimo Ice Centre (Rink #1) 3rd st (across from the Aquatic Center) marks the first Nanaimo Beer Festival put on by the Nanaimo Kinsmen. They have been proudly serving our community since 1920.
