The Cornwall Summer Beer Fest crew is working hard to bring the best party of the summer to Cornwall.

CORNWALL, Ontario - The Cornwall Summer Beer Fest is in its third year and this is the year that they plan on going big.

For the first time, Summer Beer Fest will be held in Lamoureux Park. This larger venue will accommodate representatives from 15 breweries, eight market vendors and eight food vendors.

Gates will open at 11 a.m. on June 24 and the party will continue until 11 p.m. that evening.

There will be musical performances throughout the evening, with the show being headlined by Canadian hip-hop artist Classified, who recently won Song of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards.

"Summer Beer Fest is excited to bring big things to Cornwall," said organizer Sebastien Manigat. "Our event headliner, Classified, is one of the biggest shows Cornwall has ever seen."

Going big, innovation, and connectivity are all important themes of this year's Beer Fest, which is why Summer Beer Fest is proud to have Ontarioeast as a major sponsor.

“We’re happy to have Ontarioeast on board as our title sponsor,” said Manigat. “Ontarioeast is an exceptional local company and community supporter. With this relationship, we’re able to have the cool and connected event our community has asked for. Our goal is always to enhance the guest experience, and having Wi-Fi available in the park during Summer Beer Fest helps us achieve that.”

Manigat is also proud to have a strong, diverse team around him who are helping him make this year's Beer Fest a huge success.

"We brought together a strong bunch of young, local people," he said. "They came to Summer Beer Fest with great ideas and lots of passion for putting on this fun and innovative event for the people of Cornwall.”

General Admission is $30 and deluxe is $90. Attendance is projected to be 2, 500+.
