About Picklefest™ Food and Drink Festival

Henderson Brewing Company proudly announces the return of Canada’s largest Picklefest—the original and most colossal celebration of all things pickled and fermented. This year, Picklefest™ Food and Drink Festival has grown to a two-day smorgasbord, October 5 - 6, elevating the art of pickling to a whole new level.

Whether its brined, fermented, cured, marinated or preserved, all things pickled will be on full display for all to enjoy.

Picklefest™ is more than just a food or beer festival; "it's a cultural phenomenon that celebrates the diverse tapestry of flavours that pickling brings to the culinary world," says Adin Wener, co-founder of Henderson Brewing. As craft beer aficionados, we revel in the complex fermentation processes, making this festival a perfect fusion of our passions. Plus, I just love watching people’s faces light up when they talk about pickles!"
