There will be food tents galore, a picnic area, cigar lounge, and champagne stage. Your appetite will be well past satisfied by the end of the event.

This year’s menu is a mix of southern and Pacific Rim cuisine.  Chef, Brett Turner has transformed the traditional southern inspired food by incorporating our favourite local flavours. The result is a tantalizing array of food that embody the spirit of the West Coast.
