Ace of Base
The Festival of Beer already in its 17th year, is trying something new this year in launching the first-ever Queer Beer Festival, taking place on Thursday, August 4, 2011 at the Canadian National Exhibition, Bandshell Park. And guess who’s headlining? ACE OF BASE!!!

Having sold in excess of 30 million records worldwide, the Swedish Super-group will be making a rare appearance in the City, fronted by sexy new Vocalists Clara and Julia.  And yes, the Group responsible for smashes like All that She Wants and Beautiful Life are responsible for influencing the sounds of many a Pop Princess of today -  Lady Gaga and Katy Perry included.  They will be among several local Queer Acts and DJs appearing at the Festival.

The Queer Beer Festival is a celebration of the love for Beer in all its varieties among the Queer and Trans communities. There will be over 100 Food and Beer Vendors on-site serving deliciousness like Poutine to authentic BBQ; there also will be several Vegetarian options too.

Early Bird Tickets are available for those of you who buy before May 18, 2011 at $33.50 only.  Above this, $5.19 from each Ticket sold before July 8th will be donated to the 519 Community Centre, located in the heart of The Village. Too many reasons to go!
