Gananoque Brewing announces month-long Harvest Festival in August
Gananonque, ON – Gananoque Brewing Co. today announced its new month-long Harvest Festival, set to debut in August 2014, has received $110,000 in funding from Ontario’s Local Food Fund, part of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food’s Local Food Act.
The Harvest Festival will feature brewery, winery and farm tours, hop picking, mill visits and a country market. The festival is designed to attract visitors and boost tourism in the region and strengthen the market for local food and beverages.
“I’m a strong supporter of the Gananoque Brewing Company’s Harvest Festival because it’s a tremendous way to showcase the outstanding local flavours our region has to offer visitors and area residents alike,” said Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark. “I’m proud the province has recognized the value of this festival to our local economy through the financial support of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and I look forward to more community partners becoming involved to help make our debut event even more successful.”
Earlier in March, McLean’s Ales received $472,780 in funding from Ontario’s Local Food Fund to build a new brewery in Hanover, ON.
The 4-week long Harvest Festival runs August 22 to September 21, 2014.
