Fraser Valley Cork and Keg Festival

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

The Fraser Valley Cork and Keg Festival is coming to the Langley Events Centre on September 30, 2011! A showcase of international and local wines, craft and premium beer, local cheesemaker’s and chocolatier’s specialties, this inaugural event is going to be fantastic and Fraser Valley Pulse is thrilled to be on board as a sponsor.

The festival, which runs from 7PM – 10PM, will host 600 attendees, showcasing 55 wine and beer purveyors who will be sampling over 275 products! Check out the list of vendors – it’s going to be fun!

Whether you are a wine or beer enthusiast, a novice who wants to learn more or a seasoned guru – you are encouraged to attend. Tickets are available online and, if you purchase before September 15th, you are entered to win some great prizes. 

A trade and media event will be held from 2PM – 4PM before the consumer evening event. Admission to this portion of the event is complimentary, but you are required to register ahead of time. It is intended for the hospitality and food and beverage industry only; the general public is not invited. Vendors will be pouring specialty products during this time and is a great opportunity for anyone in the hospitality industry to try some great products and meet with the Liquor Agents onsite.

We are excited to share two pairs of tickets with some lucky readers. Please leave a comment below to be entered to win. You must be 19 years of age or older to enter to win this prize; minors will not be permitted at the event.

Winners will be announced on September 22, 2011.
