10 Years of the Flavour Trails North Saanich Food and Farm Festival is something to celebrate! Join the festivities on Aug 18-20, 2017 for a great weekend of local food, music, farm-life, community history and, of course, bounty from land and sea. You will be surprised what you end up savouring, experiencing and taking home!!
This year the festival features many of the familiar and popular stops people have come to love, and there are some new and exciting additions to the circuit too. The festival is part rural ramble and part celebration! Seventeen diverse venues will open their doors to visitors and offer their specialties and seasonal delights. Expect to find behind-the-scenes tours of farms and food venues, food samplings and cooking demonstrations, great music, educational talks from past and present, kids activities and farm animal fun, and much more. It is no wonder the NSFFF has just been voted a finalist in the Peninsula News Review’s Reader’s Choice Awards for Best Farm Event.
