Alberta Beer Festival is the hub that connects breweries, agencies, restaurants, liquor stores and beer enthusiasts in Western Canada.  We strive to educate our fellow Albertans on all things beer related, and part of what we do is hold awesome beer festivals like the Calgary International Beerfest and Calgary Oktoberfest!  

Increase your beer knowledge and find a new favourite beer at the Calgary International Beerfest May 5 & 6 by sampling some of the more than 500 different types of beer in the BMO Centre, Stampede Park.

Take part in the Brew Master Seminar, Cooking with Beer Seminar, attend Beer University, vote for the People’s Choice awards, meet new people, sample delicious foods, enjoy the atmosphere and entertainment, and most importantly, have a great time!

Similar to the original Munich festival, which celebrates local beer and food, Calgary Oktoberfest September 22 & 23 will feature both local craft and authentic Bavarian breweries in the Upper Big Four Building, Stampede Park.  There will be a wide selection of craft beers and delicious foods to sample from, along with authentic Oktoberfest music, dancers, games, and more; all in a social and fun environment!
