Vancouver Foodster announces the Vancouver Soup Festival

Welcome to the inaugral Vancouver Soup Festival which runs for 3 weeks from January 10 – 31st. Each week a different selection of soups will be featured by each of the restaurants.

The idea for this festival came about to offer restaurants who aren’t participating in the dine out festival a promotion to assist them in attracting new customers and obtain increased revenues from their existing customers, this will also be a chance to get the customers involved and engaged with the social media of the promotion. Starting off small with a selection of diverse restaurants from around the Vancouver area, my hope is to grow this festival larger over the years to come.

Here are the soup creations for the 1st week which runs January 10 -16.
