On Saturday May 12, 2018, join the Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbiafor a celebration of iconic, local delicacy at the 12th Annual Spot Prawn Festival.
Available online: Get your 2018 Spot Prawn Festival tickets.
This year, there are three ways to enjoy the Spot Prawn Festival:
- FREE – access to the docks, view cooking demos and more
- $10 – Spot Prawn Chowder – to go if you want.
- $60 – A grazing style tasting menu with a selection of 6 delicious spot prawn dishes.

NEW: A TASTING MENU OF 6 SPOT PRAWN DISHES
A wonderful idea for Mother’s Day weekend: a grazing event to enjoy six delicious spot prawn dishes that showcase the many ways this delicacy can be served.
Dishes will be prepared by some of BC’s finest chefs, a nice way to sample various creations and for you to say hello to the chefs as you move between the food stations and savour samples of wine from Evolve Cellars, beer and coffee from Mogiana Coffee.
Two services are available:
- 11:30 am to 1 pm
- 1:30 pm to 3 pm
Tickets for the grazing event are $60.00 per person (plus tax and service fee) and include a delicious tasting menu consisting of six spot prawn dishes, wine and beer samples, bread from Terra Breads, and a coffee and treat to end your meal.
The Spot Prawn Festival is made possible due to the generosity of the following sponsors:
- Pacific Prawn Fishermen’s Association (PPFA) and their fishermen
- False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf
- A&B Party Rentals
- Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts (PICA)
- Vancouver Community College (VCC)
Tickets always sell out and space is limited, so to avoid being disappointed the public is encouraged to buy their tickets as soon as possible.
Please stay tuned for the announcement of headlining chefs taking part in this year’s festival.
