Roots and Brews


On the final day of 2016’s Iron Horse Festival, prepare for an afternoon of some of the greatest pleasures in life: live Roots music, delicious craft beer, and some barbecue. These are the stars of the festival’s grand finale: Roots, Brews, and BBQ. This fantastic event takes place in the heart of the festival, right on the historic rail lands of the Elgin County Railway Museum.

Enjoy the finest brews handcrafted to perfection by our many local breweries, including St. Thomas’s own Railway City Brewing, as well as Anderson Craft Ales, New Limburg, and Bell City Brewing.

Sit back to the sounds of live Roots music throughout the afternoon. Performances begin at 12:00 with Texas King, followed by the talents of Hollow Romance, Zach McCabe, Last Highway, The Dozens, and Aaron Allen.

Tickets to Roots, Brews, and BBQ are available in advance online and at the door for $5, with advance tickets including a free bonus souvenir glass and sample ticket. Get your ticket now:
