Creemore's Copper Kettle Festival
Creemore Springs Brewery hosts its annual Copper Kettle Festival, an old-time village fair held on Main Street, Creemore in the heart of Ontario. Delicious fun for foodies, families and beer lovers, this local celebration includes an early morning farmers’ market, kids’ activities, wagon rides, classic car show, brewery tours and a beer garden featuring live entertainment. Rain or Shine!

The village of Creemore (how to get there) is beautiful and the beer will be flowing. This would make the perfect 'get out of Toronto' day trip. BBQ'd pulled pork sandwiches, corn, fresh Creemore beer and music will no doubt make for a great day in picturesque Creemore. And hey, when was the last time you rode a pony with a pint in your hand?

*Note - you may not be able to actually ride a pony with a pint, but wouldn't that be fun!!*
