Hops & Harvest is an autumn festival that features local food, beverage and market vendors while celebrating the great outdoors. Inspired by the changing colours of the escarpment, the patchwork of farm fields and the abundance of fresh farmers’ market produce, Hops & Harvest is a unique opportunity to hike the trails, take a chairlift ride, admire the spectacular scenery, and support local small businesses! Hops & Harvest is about bringing people together and creating opportunities to appreciate the natural and cultural heritage of the Niagara escarpment.
This 2021 festival will be extra special since it will allow Conservation Halton and the community celebrate and support local businesses who have been especially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be COVID-19 compliant according to the provincial framework in place, to ensure a safe experience for all attendees and vendors. This is a rain or shine event, we are looking forward to seeing you out there!
The format of the beverage experience for Hops & Harvest has changed slightly this year, to ensure a safe experience for all on site . While beverage samples will not be offered, attendees will have the option to purchase full size beverages from vendors – a different way to sample the offerings of local businesses. Given the revised format, there will be 5 beverage vendors on site, selling up to 15 different drinks. This will ensure a successful festival for all vendors while providing ample variety to attendees.

Masks will be required onsite when social distancing is not possible or when eating or drinking. Vaccination is recommended but not mandates as per Public Health regulations for outdoor events.
