I was thinking of starting an annual Keg fest in Ontario. Thinking a good location would be in Milton heart of the golden horseshoe. Also thinking of calling the event "KEGGONTARIO". I have some contacts with OMC and would have them set up at the event to show off the new stuff they have every year. Feedback would be great before I go deep with this.

Hmm...  9 hours for me.  That's closer that Alabama!

That would be great to see you organize it.  Im sure Caj would offer advice from his experience last year.

They are closed minded idiots (did I just say that?? YEP!) and they can't see the usefulness of other types of cookers.

Would this be something like an over the weekend type event or more a one day at the part type?

I am open to suggestions. I would be game for the weekend. OMC may just do the Saturday but I think that would be good. Friday Greet and meet (a few bevies) Saturday cook and Sunday breakfest pies, pack up, head home.....

Half the drive 4 me....

Do you need a passport to enter Canada from the USA?


For a ONE DAY EVENT...I'll pass not worth the cost of travel.

Two days will be better.

I live in South Florida.  I've always wanted to visit Canada, but there's no way I'd drive 1,500 miles for a one-day event.  If it were 2 or more days, I'd seriously consider it.

I would like some feedback regarding other locations besides Milton. I am open to any suggestions and will have the poll open for the next couple of weeks. If there is not enough interest then I may have to make the drive to Kegtoberfest this year.

We would be more than happy to host a 1-day event at our offices.  Two or more would be a bit trickier... but there are several campgrounds near Onward that could work.

I would suggest that a 1-day lets us gauge interest first before expanding.  Could invite some dealers and some local restaurant presence as well - there is a strong restaurant crowd in Kitchener-Waterloo.

I agree that this year we do the 1 day thing and see what kind of turnout we get. I originally picked Milton because of it's central location for the GTA and surrounding areas, even from Barrie it is just over an hour drive. I will see what the poll says late next week and other feedback. You must work for OMC? I was going to contact a sales person through my sister who has worked customer service for many years but if your on board then it is a good start. Thanks for the input....
