Friday, August 22nd until September 21st GBC (Gananoque Brewing Company ) Harvest Festival “The GBC Harvest Festival will be a month-long celebration of local food, beer and the people who make our region great: farmers, food processors, brewers, chefs, artisans and artists,” said Scott Peterson, Chairman of the Gananoque Brewing Company. “We are pleased to being a lead role in bringing people together to get this done.”

The festival will take place over four weeks (five weekends) from August 22 to September 21 to coincide with local hop picking and the harvesting of local crops. The festival is designed to draw local and regional tourists to the area, providing visitors with greater local choices in food. Activities will include farm visits, hop picking, visits to a working mill, expanded farmers’ markets throughout the region, plus a local music festival. The festival will work closely with chefs and hospitality workers to promote local menu options. Details will be announced in the coming months.
