The Strait Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to be celebrating their 3rd year of Celtic Oktoberfest - Cape Breton’s first ever all inclusive craft beer, local food and celtic music gathering!  

Recognizing the growing strength of the emerging craft brewery sector, and its impact on tourism in the region, the Strait Area Chamber created Celtic Oktoberfest to showcase the best of Nova Scotian craft beer and Cape Breton food. The addition of a local winery broadens the appeal of the event which attracts approximately 400 people each year.  

For the price of a ticket, attendees receive unlimited access to the highest quality products from nine breweries, a winery, and ten food establishments!  Here’s who you can expect to see at this year’s event:

Big Spruce Brewing
Garrison Brewing
Hell Bay Brewing
Uncle Leo's Brewery
Boxing Rock Brewing
Tatamagouche Brewing
Breton Brewing
Authentic Seacoast
Spindrift Brewing
Eileanan Breagha Vineyards  
      Governor's Pub & Eatery
Clove Hitch Bar & Bistro
Fleur de Lis Tearoom
Cabot Links
NSCC Culinary School
Dancing Goat Café
Miller's Tap & Grill
Buschmann Free Range Bio Farm
Louie's Cosy Corner
Barykin Bistro 


And, of course, it wouldn’t be a true Cape Breton party if we didn’t have live Celtic music. So, we’ve lined up some of the Island’s best musicians to take the stage and make this night one to remember!  We kick things off with fabulous Chrissy Crowley and Jason Roach, and then we close the night with the Jesus Murphy Band - a 5 piece Irish band that promises to bring down the house!  So get your ticket today!
