Welcome to Flavour Trails!
The Flavour Trails program promotes and organizes community celebrations that provide opportunities to experience the quality and creativity of the Capital Region’s harvesters, farmers, fishers, food producers, chefs, vintners, cider makers, brewers and distillers.
By connecting consumers to growers and producers, Flavour Trails contributes to the growth and sustainability of the local food economy, which is at the heart of CRFAIR’s mandate.
This year's festival is made up of two parts:
The Weekend Celebration: A two-day celebration held on August 27th-28th. During these two days, many locations will be holding special events, and there'll also be an old fashioned Farm Festival at Sandown Centre for Regenerative Agriculture
The North Saanich Trail: A season-long festival celebrating and promoting vendors local to North Saanich
Saturday, August 27th and Sunday, August 28th
Many of the Flavour Trails Vendors will be hosting special events over the festival weekend. To see which ones are partaking, look for the 'Celebration Offer' sticker when browsing vendors here.
Our celebration weekend will include over 20 venues where you can meet the makers, take the tours, visit the vendors - and you might just race a zucchini! Look for the Flavour Flags this year along North Saanich country roads and check out all there is to experience throughout the Peninsula as we all celebrate the Flavour Trails Celebration Weekend.

The North Saanich Trail ...
Flavour Trails Festival isn't just about the weekend celebration - it's a season long promotion of awesome local vendors in North Saanich.
The North Saanich Flavour Trail is a rural ramble to celebrate all season long! Whether you explore by bike, car, or hoola-hoop, you'll meet an amazing group of growers, harvesters, fishers, vintners, artists, chefs and producers that are creating a rich bounty right here in our own backyard!
Visit once, or visit often - these vendors are open all season, just check their website for hours.
Local food is good food! Savour and enjoy!
