FUNKFEST does it again! The beloved sour beer and funk music festival took home the win for Ontario Culinary Tourism Event of the Year. We are honoured and humbled that our local festival in Gravenhurst is now a two-time award-winning beer festival. We’d be remiss not to mention last year’s win at the Golden Tap Awards 2017 for Editor’s Circle Winning Festival.
Sawdust City team members made the long trek down south to Windsor to attend the Ontario Tourism Summit as one of three category finalists alongside Cheers Caledon!, and the Farm to Table Community Celebration. We were celebrated alongside other creative and very worthy tourism initiatives. We took home hardware alongside great Northern company, including Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery with the Culinary Tourism Experience Award and Tourism Excellence North (TEN) with Tourism Innovator of the Year. Congrats to our friends and neighbours, we are proud to represent the North and look forward to many more years of celebrating FUNKFEST.
