This winter-warming craft beer event the last Saturday in February features dozens of local and regional craft breweries, food trucks, and live music.
The warm heart of the Kennett Winterfest has always been found in the community gathering together to enjoy some of the region’s best craft beer and to meet and support local and regional brewers. The Kennett Winterfest, a perennial bright spot on the winter calendar, celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2022.
Over 60 local, regional, and award-winning breweries bring their best for Kennett Winterfest ticket holders to sample. In addition to longstanding favorites like Kennett Square’s own Kennett Brewing Company and Braeloch Brewing as well as Levante Brewing Company and East Branch Brewing Company, there are always a few newcomers. Brewers often create something new and special to bring to Kennett Winterfest. Live music, food trucks, and a great selection of beer-centric vendors round out the event.
The exclusive “Def Conn” (“definitely connoisseur”) session at Winterfest always features the winner of the “Best of Connoisseur Brewery” from the previous fall’s the 2021 Kennett Brewfest event, along with food pairings from Talula’s Table.
The Kennett Winterfest is one of the major annual fundraisers for Kennett Collaborative, and all Winterfest proceeds support the programs and events we create to help Kennett become a more beautiful and welcoming community where all can belong and prosper.
