Come out and experience Toronto's first ever Tequila Festival! Join us on October 4th at Berkeley Church to sample what premium tequila has to offer. Drinks, tacos, entertainment and more; the Toronto Tequila Festival has it all for both the tequila aficionados and those looking to discover their new favourite spirit.
Do reposado, blanco, añejo or mezcal mean anything to you? Fear not, as brand representatives, both domestic and international, will gladly walk you through the different distillation and aging processes that achieve each
distinct flavour profile.
This is a pay as you go event, with tokens and vouchers worth $2 each.
A commemorative sample glass is provided upon entry.
$20 in advance
$30 at the door subject to availability
Admission includes Tequila Festival Sampling Glass
Agave based spirits are the star of the show! Whether neat or in a margarita, our vendors will have the best products to suit whatever type of drink you're looking for. Complimentary educational sessions will also be held for those who are curious about the differences in each spirit and how they are made.
Craving the perfect bite to go with your cóctel? Tacos and other deliciosos bocados will be available from the Berkeley Events kitchen for pairing with your new favourites.
In between samplings, check out a free session in the Wine Cellar (downstairs) hosted by our Head of Education Jon Gray! Find out how tequila is aged and sample to see the different flavour profiles in the 6:30pm session. New to mezcal? Sit in on the 7:30 session to learn the basics and sample three brands. Or imbibe in the 8:30pm session to learn about the world of tequila cocktails beyond margaritas!
