Over 3,000 people took in our annual festival on Beechwood this month reveling in the sounds of Jeremy Fisher and Rise Ashen, tasting delicious food from 20 different vendors, having a refreshing Bicycle Brewery brew and celebrating with their neighbours.
Here’s some interesting facts about BeechFest:
- 2 GARBAGE BINS: Thanks to Ottawa Reduces green team 3000 people produced only 2 cans of garbage. We also filled 20 compost bins, and 30 bags of recycling
- Bicycle Craft Brewery made a very generous donation to the Vanier Community Association from their sales that night and all the cans were recycled by Ottawa Reduces
- BeechFest partners with the John Howard society to hire some of their clients to help with key event positions
- Sponsors like Chartwells New Edinburgh, Desjardins, Metro and Natalie Belovic make this event possible.
- MP Mona Fortier, and councillors Mathieu Fleury and Rawlson King were present and give out more than 1000 cobbs of corn
