Canada Festivals For Foodies

Foodies love a good feast, and Canada delivers with a tasty array of ways to celebrate gastronomic delights from coast to coast.


Dine Out Vancouver ~~ January / February
Canada’s largest restaurant festival is a favorite for foodies far and wide. Tens of thousands of hungry diners visit over 200 participating restaurants featuring prix-fixe menus at this annual event. Special culinary sessions, demonstrations and tastings are also part of the delectable fun.

Whistler’s Cornucopia ~~ November
Fresh ideas and inspiration are plentiful at educational drink seminars, chef’s demonstrations, signature events, and delicious winery dinners.


Le Festival du Voyageur, Winnipeg ~~ February
Known as the world’s largest kitchen party, this shindig celebrates the fur trader with delectable French-Canadian munchies like maple taffy, made with hot maple syrup and snow, and caribou — a traditional drink of red wine mixed with homemade whisky. PS: There’s also a beard-growing contest as part of the wintry fun!


Shediac Lobster Festival ~~ June
Shediac, dubbed the Lobster Capital of the World, is the natural host for the Shediac Lobster Festival where an 85-ft (26-m) long lobster roll is the star of the show. Live music events, parades, and treasure hunts also draw visitors to the summertime seafood fest.


PEI Fall Flavors Festival ~~ September / October
An incredible culinary celebration showcasing the tastes, the people, and the places that make Canada’s “Food Island” a must-visit destination for foodies. The colorful fete features events like the Shellfish Festival, Beef & Blues, and Clammin’ and Jammin’, which pairs mollusks and music.


Roots, Rants and Roars, Elliston ~~ September
Each year on the third weekend in September, Elliston, the root cellar capital of the world becomes the backdrop for a two-day celebration of Newfoundland and Labrador food, culture, land, and sea. Visitors can enjoy delicacies served in gourmet food stations as they hike the coastal trails of historic Elliston.
