Calling all whisky aficionados and those who want to learn more about whisky: There is a BRAND NEW whisky event in the region that I recommend attending. It is The Wonderful World of Whisky Show taking place on Saturday, March 25th at the Nav Centre in Cornwall, Ontario.
Come and celebrate everything whisky!
The Nav Centre in Cornwall is the perfect venue as it is ideally located for people to attend from the Ottawa / Outaouais region, Kingston area and even Montreal. Another great feature about the Nav Centre as a venue, is that you can also stay the night, as they offer 560 guest accommodations at very reasonable prices. If you plan on attending the Whisky Show you can book your room here.
The Wonderful World of Whisky Show 2017 will be held in the ballroom of the Nav Centre. The ballroom will be made-up of numerous tents, each of which will represent different countries.
