Head for the Hills Festival in Halton Hills not just for beer anymore


Published July 6, 2023 at 9:17 am

A popular festival in Halton Hills is going to be about more than just beer this year.

The Head for the Hills Craft Beer Festival is no more. Beginning this year, the ‘beer’ will be changing to ‘beverage’ as organizers will also offer cider and other craft beverages.

The event is held annually in Georgetown and features, in addition to several unique beverage brewers, amazing food trucks offering international cuisine and plenty of fun and games.

The first event was held in 2015 after the four service clubs of Georgetown (Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis and Kinsmen) united to raise funds for charity. Head for the Hills is entirely volunteer-run and benefits local charities.

The feature charities are Food4Kids North Halton, a group that provides nutritious food for schoolchildren across Halton to take home over the weekend, and Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills (CASHH), a group that provides support and services for cancer patients and their families.

During its years of operation, more than $500,000 has been donated back to the community.

The event is one day only, rain or shine, Saturday, Sept. 16, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Trafalgar Sports Park, 11494 Trafalgar Rd. in Georgetown.

There are several ticket packages available, including a VIP ticket, and early-bird discounted pricing ends soon.
