BrewHa Festival was created in 2015 by friends getting together to put on a big party for their community.  Now under new ownership by the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce, it aims to be bigger than ever – expanding BrewHa’s offerings to better spotlight and engage local and regional culinary offerings.


Delicious craft brew paired with local food & music. Situated on the beautiful north shore of Lake Superior, BrewHa Festival expands the palate and makes for good times with friends.
