A huge Wine & Spirit Festival is coming to Toronto's waterfront June 12 and 13

Mar 2 2020, 10:38 am

Raise a glass, because whether the weather would have you believe it or not, spring is almost here. And that means that a wave of new day-drinking opportunities is upon us.

Fittingly, Toronto’s Wine & Spirit Festival is returning to the city for another year this June, bringing cocktails, wines, beers, and ciders to the waterfront.

While the line-up of 2020 vendors is still TBA, the festival, taking place June 12 and 13 at Sugar Beach, will “showcase the talents of the world’s most renowned wine, beer, cider, and spirit producers along with chefs and culinary personalities.”

The event will run from 3 pm to 11 pm on Friday, and from noon to 10 pm on Saturday, offering plenty of opportunities to indulge in sips and bites as you bask in the warm air near the water.

Ticket prices include a sampling cup and wristband for admission to complimentary seminars, and you can currently grab early bird tickets for a discounted rate.

Plus, a portion of proceeds from ticket sales will go to The Canadian Music Therapy Fund.
