The Brewhalla Cloverdale event happened at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds in Surrey on October 28th last year. If and when it happens in 2024 is to be confirmed.
If you like beer-themed events, other ones you might also want to check out usually include the Oktoberfest event at the Austria Vancouver Club and Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week. For folks who like breweries and haunted houses, then another awesome event to check out last year was the Dead Fellows Haunted Brewhouse at Strange Fellows Brewing in Vancouver.
Brewhalla Cloverdale Beer and Music Festival at Halloween
The Brewhalla Festival is an adults-only festival that stopped in four different cities in 2023. The first event was held in North Vancouver in April. Brewhalla Fort Langley then took place in May. The third event happened in Chilliwack in October and the final stop of the 2023 season was in Surrey.
The second annual Brewhalla Cloverdale event took place on Saturday, October 28th, in 2023. The event ran from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm at the Cloverdale Agriplex. The venue is located at 17798 62nd Avenue in Surrey.
There were multiple things to enjoy at Brewhalla Cloverdale in 2023. Of course, there were a number of local breweries on site serving samples of beer, cider and wine. Last year, there were also non-alcoholic samples available. To go with all of the beverages, food trucks were selling a variety of snacks and meals. In addition to all of the drinks and food, there was also live entertainment by talented performers.
One unique component of the first ever Cloverdale event was its Halloween theme. Attendees were encouraged to wear costumes. Since the event happened on the weekend just before Halloween last year, Brewhalla Cloverdale likely had a similar theme again.
