About the Festival

The Shuswap Brewers Fest is a celebration of locally made craft beer, cider, and spirits. This event will bring together community supporting local businesses and highlighting what our region has to offer in the beverage industry. There will be live music, food trucks, entertainment, and beverage vendors.

This event is a fundraiser for the Salmon Arm Rescue Society as they upgrade equipment to match the heightened demand on our highways with first responder calls.
