FlairFest is Canada’s longest running bartending competition. The 12th year will see the event hosted at Barefoot Beach Resort on the newly developed Growers Cider Beach Stage.

As flair bartending continues to grow, there are endless competitions to be found around the world. FlairFest is evolving into a different kind of flair competition, one that focuses on bringing together some of the top talent in the industry, not for huge purses and strict rules and guidelines, but for the camaraderie and love of the sport.

This is a competition by bartenders, for bartenders!

This year’s event will have a focus on creating great experiences and memories for competitors in a casual atmosphere, where it is more about bragging rights and catching up with industry friends, than strict rules and a formal environment.

As such, FlairFest XII has been dubbed “The Bartenders Retreat” and there is no better venue for a retreat than Barefoot Beach Resort on the August Long Weekend!

Competitors will be treated to a full itinerary featuring everything from party barges and river floats, to dinners and VIP club experiences – and of course a little flair to tie it all together!
