Steampunk Craft Spirit Festival


Submitted by:


The Castlegar Sunrise 2000 Rotary Club is proud to announce our new community event. The 1st annual Craft Spirit Festival will be held at the Castlegar Community Complex on Saturday, October 28. This is a fun, tasting and sampling, festival that embraces craft and artisanal producers of beer, cider and spirits.

Our committee is busy lining up a broad spectrum of producers, both regionally and provincially based, to enhance your tasting experience. Because of the proximity to Halloween we are prompting guests to dress in costume and the theme for this years event is ‘Steampunk’.

In addition to the beer, cider and spirit exhibitors we will also have food vendors and other vendors of related items. For the fun component we will have games and hourly door prizes. There will also be a costume competition with prizes. You can even vote for a fan favourite, the winners of which will be announced at the event.

Tickets will be available for purchase online as well as in Castlegar, Nelson and at Selkirk College. ALL tickets must be purchased in advance of the event, as tickets will not be available at the door. For more information email 

You must be 19 to attend and ID will be required for anyone looking 25 or younger. Our ‘Safe Ride Home’ will be available to guests attending this event.
