Dancing, beer, food and more beer. This sounds like our kind of festival. Visit beautiful Vancouver Island and leave the bustle of the big city for Longwoodstock in Nanaimo. It features small-batch brews from local brewery Longwood Brewery, local bands, artists, and plenty of activities to keep your thirst for adrenaline satisfied, too.
Longwoodstock showcases a selection of the best handcrafted beer from Longwood Brewing. Meet the brewers, sample the latest beer releases and learn about traditional small-batch brewing.
Venues all around downtown Nanaimo get into the spirit of the event with live music on Friday night.
