Fall Foodie Events

26 Aug

Even though summer may be technically near its end, there are lots of great foodie events just around the corner. I thought I’d take some time to round up a listing of everything coming up in the Fraser Valley over the next few months that I think are worthy of your attention. If you notice any events I’ve missed, please let me know. I’ll update as necessary up until the beginning of October.

Feast of Fields, at Krause Berry Farms on Sunday, September 8th. This is by far my favourite foodie event of the year. I attended in 2011 and 2012, and every year has been phenomenal. The selection of food and drinks is always amazing, and the locations have been pretty spectacular as well. On a personal note, I’m glad that they’ll be back at Krause this year, which means that a car will be unnecessary. Last year I was the designated driver, which was fine, but I was sad to only be able sample a very small amount of the drinks. I’m looking forward to all the delicious food and drinks, and based on the sneak preview that I went to recently, it’s going to be another taste explosion!

BBQ on the Bypass, September 15th in the parking lot of Well Seasoned. If you love BBQ, then this is the event for you! Free samples all day long, live entertainment, and of course the BBQ and pie competitions.

3rd Annual Cork and Keg Festival, held at the Cascades Casino on Friday, September 20th. I couldn’t attend last year, but I went in 2011, and it was a great evening of wine and beer tasting. along with some food. They’ve expanded the event SO much in the past two years, and I’m excited to hopefully attend again this year. There are two portions of the event: one for media in the afternoon, and then the full event which is open to anyone (19+, of course). Among the food options this year will be an oyster bar, provided by 1 Fish 2 Fish. Definitely don’t miss out on what is sure to be an excellent event. Tickets are $49.95, and are available on the event’s website.

Fraser Valley Food Show, held at the Tradex in Abbotsford from October 4th-6th. Featured events that weekend include a Master Chef competition, Celebrity Stage with Rob Feenie and others, Bite of the Valley (where you can sample menu selections for just $1-$4), wine and beer tasting and more. I’ve always meant to attend this event, but maybe this year I’ll be able to make it out. General Admission is $9 per day, but if you buy your tickets online in advance, you can save $2.
