Quench Craft Beer Festival is an annual celebration of craft beer, cider & more, featuring 25 different craft producers from across Ontario.

Quench will take place on Sunday, June 18th, 2023, at Market Square (91 King Street) in Downtown St. Catharines. The event will feature two 3-hour sessions, from 2PM to 5PM and 6PM to 9PM.
