Creemore Springs mixes all the right ingredients for an unforgettable weekend in the country.  Since the Brewery began in 1987 in a beautiful century old building on the main street of Creemore, the folks at Creemore Springs have strived to be the leaders in the craft industry, taking great pride to make beer the old fashioned way. 

In the year 2000, Creemore Springs started the Copper Kettle Festival: an old-fashioned street party and a small celebration of all things a hundred years behind the times, the beer, the Brewery and the town.  Since it began, the one day event has attracted more than 35,000 people to the village and gets bigger and better and draws more visitors every year.  

One can poke about the town, enjoy the morning’s Farmers’ Market or Classic Car Show, take a tour of the Brewery or stop in one of the many quaint shops along Mill Street.  Kids of all ages can head down to Mad River Park to enjoy some good old fashioned fun with live music, children’s activities, a beer garden and a variety of food choices.  Entrance to the event is free and continues rain or shine from 12pm to 6pm on Saturday, August 27th. 

This year, the folks at Creemore Springs are proud to expand the festival into two days, creating the first ever Made in Creemore Locavore Lunch on Sunday, August 28th.   The event features headline chefs - Michael Stadtländer (Eigensinn Farm/Haisai), John Higgins (George Brown Chef School), Anthony Walsh (Canoe), Anthony Rose (The Drake Hotel), Paul Boehmer (Böhmer), and Hiro Yoshida (Hiro Sushi) – who will team up with local chefs, Michel Masselin (Chez Michel), Carol & Steve Sperandeo (The Old Mill House Pub) and Don Akehurst (The Sovereign). Set in Mad River Park, the lunch will begin at 2pm.  One may enjoy a lazy, Creemore-centric afternoon, starting with appetizer stations followed by a five-course feast worthy of the world’s finest restaurants.  Tickets to the lunch are $150 (includes HST) per person and are available at the Copper Kettle website. 

With the help of the 100 Mile Store in Creemore, all of the day’s ingredients will be sourced using the best local suppliers and growers and each course will be paired with the finest selections of Creemore beer as well as a favourite Ontario wine or two.  And, best of all, a portion of the proceeds will support the Canadian Chefs Congress and the Eager Beaver Scholarship Project, both of which reinforce the passion and integrity of Canadian Food Culture.
