One of Brantford’s best-kept secrets is that you can hang out at the Brantford Municipal Airport—and it’s actually a lot of fun! In addition to nonstop takeoff and landing excitement, it’s also a great place to eat food and socialize with friends and there’s lots of different ways to do it.
Sunset, Wine & Cheese
Throughout the summer, the Brantford Municipal Airport is host to an event the third Friday of June, July and August called ‘Sunset, Wine & Cheese.’ Need we say more? This event is $15/person and includes all you can eat plus one drink ticket. Whether you’re hoping for a date night, girls night, or family night, Sunset, Wine & Cheese impresses all who attend.
The sunset is the beautiful backdrop of a social gathering as you sip wine and enjoy the variations of catered charcuterie boards and live entertainment right next to the runways. On June 21, July 19, and August 16, you can revel in the sound of local musicians and enjoy the delicious tastes of assorted meats, cheeses, artisan breads, salads, fruits, sauces, and more. This event features four different kinds of red and white wines, and four different international types of beer. Bring your friends and family, relax after work and enjoy beautiful flavoured waters and a sunset that will take your breath away. Games and train rides are available for the kids around the spectacular airport grounds. Don’t forget your lawn chairs!
