#MeetYourCity and be a part of the inaugural kick-off of the tastiest, trendiest and most immersive event in DTK. Taps and Apps will feature the best apps, taps, tastes and sounds that KW has to offer along with some extra special guests.

Your favourite local restaurants, breweries, live music and fun times all for a great cause at one of the region's most distinctive landmarks--the Walper Hotel.

All proceeds from Taps and Apps will support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Waterloo Region (BBBSWR), a community organization committed to helping children and youth in need live their potential. In 2016, their programs benefitted 1300 children with the help of 550 volunteers. There are currently 342 children on their waitlist in need of support.


What better way to celebrate our community than by supporting the children that grow up here.

#MeetYourCity, #TasteYourCity, and #LoveYourCity at Taps and Apps.
