By Kristin Archer

Last week, the media was treated to a sneak peek of the delicious food and drink that will be served at the upcoming Welcome Reception for The JUNO Awards. The red (actually, green!) carpet will roll out for the Welcome Reception on March 13th at Liuna Station, and the Awards take place on the 15th.

President & CEO of CARAS/The JUNO Awards and MusiCounts, Allan Reid, was in attendance at the exclusive tasting which showcased the scrumptious hors d’oeuvres and cocktails that this year’s nominees and industry members will be treated to upon touching down in Hamilton. The Welcome Reception is co-presented by TD and OLG Slots & Casinos and will welcome up to 1,200 guests. This event will be the official kick-off to JUNOs weekend – it’s hard to believe the festivities are almost here!

Liuna Station Sous Chefs Amanda Steen and Osmel Parody revealed the menu they crafted for the grand occasion. Colby Spirit and Wine was also on hand with their specialty cocktails that will be featured at the event and throughout the weekend. For your beer needs, Steamwhistle Brewery is the official beer sponsor of JUNO Week.
