2020 COMMUNITY POTLUCK AND BREWFEST

6:30 PM on Saturday, February 22 at RKHCA Hall (Adults Only, Free for Members)

The Community Potluck & Brewfest will be a great evening of sharing food and a brew or two with fellow community members. Make it a date night and bring your favourite food to share (enough for you and a couple of friends). We’re planning to have the Brewmaster from Marda Loop Brewing participate with beer tasting for everyone. Non-alcoholic beverages and wine will be available if beer's not your thing. 

Along with some music, this will be a fun-filled evening. Those who attended our Fall wine tasting night know that Richmond Knob Hill is a great community. Sign up here and reach out to a neighbour to join you. Let's have a good time.
