The signature, award winning North Saanich Flavour Trails Festival takes place on August 16-18, 2019! Experience a fantastic weekend of local food, music, farm-life, community history and, of course, bounty from land and sea. Part rural ramble, part celebration, the North Saanich Flavour Trails Festival lets you explore what is being grown, harvested, made and served on the peninsula!!

From watching ancient grain mills at work, to sipping local wines in the vineyard, or sampling roasted local meats hot off the spit, there is so much to savour.  You’ll marvel at what working sheep dogs can do and be overtaken by the mischievous cuteness of baby goats, ducks and miniature donkeys.  There is so much to explore and experience!  It is no surprise the festival continues to be a favourite in the Reader’s Choice Awards for Best Farm Event. 

Closer to the festival date, you can download the festival brochure and map below, or pick a copy up at local businesses, libraries/public buildings, and tourist information centres, and start planning your route! Biking is a great way to go, and there are two Park and Bike lots for you to park your car.

Beyond two full days of activities, the festival hosts two special events you will not want to miss:
