Drinks of Walkerville Walking Tour
Kick off the month learning some history over whisky, beer and bourbon. Join us for our Drinks of Walkerville walking tour, the first Saturday of every month, and see for yourself why this tour was named an Ontario Signature Experience.
Guests jaunt through historic Old Walkerville, the town that Canadian Club built, and learn about its architecture as well as some well known and not so well known tales and folklore associated with the neighbourhood, including its rich rum running history and visits by Al Capone. You can even touch a bullet hole purported to have been shot by Al himself.
You’ll walk through the hallways of the Canadian Club Brand Centre, home of Canadian Club whiskey, which was made popular again through acclaimed television programs Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire,and be brought through the history and brewing process of Walkerville Brewery. All this before finishing off the tour discovering the street art at The Willistead Restaurant.

Friday Night Lights
Want to try a fun and unique experience that’s free?
We will take guests out on the town to explore the night life in Windsor. The catch: since it’s a night ride you’ll need lights on your bike. The more lights the better!
While we encourage you to be as creative as possible with your lights, all you’ll need is a simple bike light to make yourself seen at night. If you don’t have any lights for your bike, we’ll also have bikes available for rent with special lighting to light up the night with designs and colours to make every passerby turn and see.
To support local businesses, we’ll be making two stops along the route for those who want to purchase beverages or a bite to eat.
The starting location, stops and route will be determined closer to the ride.
