Brewloops is back with a pared-down version of its popular beer and music festival!
After two years shuttered, Kamloops’ beloved Brewloops celebration will return to McArthur Island Park on Saturday, May 28, 2022 for a more intimate, limited-capacity version of its carnivalesque festival. With the same style-forward approach as past festivals, this year’s event will be more focused on showcasing the unique craft beer from the region, with less of the ballyhoo that you’ve come to expect from our larger, multi-day outdoor beer and music events.
The 1-day festival will showcase the best regional breweries, craft ciders, live entertainment, gourmet food, and wacky activities. Brewloops has historically attracted nearly 4,000 festival goers and is widely regarded as one of the best loved events of its kind by patrons and participants alike. This spring, as we ease our way back to in-person events, we’re creating a more exclusive event and limiting the number of tickets that will be sold to 800. While the capacity for this year’s event may be smaller, the beer, food, and good times will be as big and bold as years prior.
This year’s reduced capacity has given greater focus to highlight a select number of hand-picked, hyper-local regional breweries.
About McArthur Island Park
McArthur Island Park is a must visit for the active tourist. Golf, soccer, football, baseball, and cricket games can be viewed as you stroll around the perimeter of the park on the paved trail.
Unorganized recreational pursuits include walking, jogging and rollerblading on a 3.1 km paved perimeter walkway. Much of the walkway passes by unique and natural riparian areas and the deck along the south side provides a relaxing rest spot and a place to observe many different birds.
This 2000 square meter concrete paradise holds some of the best features in BC. 4′ quarterpipes line the upper decks for maximum speed and flow, while the plethora of obstacles will keep you busy all day.
McArthur Island Sports and Events Centre
A 1200 seat NHL arena, an 800 seat Olympic ice sheet and a curling rink. Recent renovations now offer 9 full size soccer fields, 1 super 8 soccer field and 2 baseball fields from rookie to midget ages.
McArthur Island Youth Centre – Capacity 100 – 444
This facility includes computer access, a full-size gymnasium, 2 kitchens, craft room, wood shop, games/lounge room and teen room. The playing fields, tennis courts and natural setting of the island lends to the diversity of programs offered at the Club. It is used mainly for youth activity and is home to the Kamloops Boys and Girls Club.
The McArthur Island Lawn Bowling Club has been on the island for over 15 years and provides both social and recreational activities for many bowlers both young and old alike.
Norbrock was built as a 1967 Canada Centennial project. In 2005 the stadium received a $2.2 M facelift adding new dugouts, change rooms, washrooms and seating for 1500 spectators. Norbrock is home to Thompson Rivers University Wolf Pack and Kamloops Sundevils baseball clubs. The arena comes alive every July during the Kamloops International Baseball Tournament which hosts teams from Canada and the USA.
Canada Games Ball Field
The Canada Games Ball Field is a legacy from 1993 when Kamloops hosted this national event.
Approximately 4,500 youth soccer players will take advantage of the 9 new soccer pitches at McArthur Island. The Kamloops Youth Soccer Association also have their new offices located at the newly renovated Press Box restaurant building. In addition 1500 mens and ladies senior leagues will make the “Island” their home.
McArthur Island Golf Course
This comprehensive golf facility is a complete nine hole executive golf course with club rentals and pro shop.
Xeriscape Demonstration Garden
In Kamloops, the City has promoted Xeriscaping through the creation of a Xeriscape Demonstration Garden in McArthur Park, and through holding several xeriscaping seminars. Xeriscaping emphasizes the efficient use of the minimum amount of water required to sustain an attractive and functional landscape.
