DAN CEARNS The Standard

SCUGOG: The Scugog Chamber of Commerce is hoping to set a new record for attendance, when they hold their Craft Beer and Cider festival in Port Perry's Palmer Park, next month.

The event this year will be held on Friday, August 11th, from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m., and Saturday, August 12th, from 1 p.m. until 11 p.m.

At a meeting earlier this year, Scugog Chamber executive director, Karey Anne Large explained to councillors the Chamber decided to highlight cider establishments this year, to "expand on the amazing offerings of cideries we have right here in North Durham, as well as [in] the Region."

This will be the seventh time the Chamber has held this event. Ms. Large said, this year's event is "shaping up to be the best one ever."

The Scugog Chamber's website states, this event "highlights the best Durham Region has to offer in breweries, cideries, wineries, and grassroots musical talent."

"Think of this signature event as an awesome backyard party, complete with live music, craft beverages, food trucks, and of course, great company," the Chamber's post added.

As well as beer and cider, Ms. Large told councillors, "Four local food establishments will be featured, and five local artists will be performing on the stage."

Ms. Large explained, one of the benefits this event brings is "bringing people together to explore our township."

Last year, the festival saw a record 1,600 attendees.

"We hope to meet that again this year or even exceed it," she added.
