The Harrison Beer Festival has been created to showase BC Craft Breweries and celebrate craft beer month in BC.  The Harrison Hot Springs and Agassiz region has a rich history in the beer industry.  For 60 years hops, a basic ingrediant in beer, were the main industry in the Agassiz Area of British Columbia. At the height of the business, 300 acres were planted with hops.

This annual event takes place in October. In addition to bringing great tasting beer to the shores of Harrison Lake, the Harrison Beer Festival brings great food and entertainment as well.
