In recent years, there’s been no shortage of fun, inclusive events downtown. Take AleFest, for example, and one eager resident who is happy to sing of its praises.
Kiwanis AleFest is a Northern BC craft beer festival, held annually on the last weekend in January. For Ignacio Albarracin, it’s a chance to mingle with locals and visitors, taste some incredible hand-crafted beers and support a worthwhile community cause.
“Whereas other places might target warmer seasons for such events, AleFest embraces the winter and reminds everyone that the true warmth of a community stems from the quality of its people, not its climate.”
Hosted at the Two Rivers Gallery, AleFest goers enjoy separate beer tastings, tapas from the city’s finest restaurants, and live music and art exhibits. Money raised goes to Kiwanis’ initiatives that support children, globally.
