Vancouver Island Feast of Fields, 22nd Annual
August 25 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Celebrate Local! Feast of Fields is a three hour wandering gourmet harvest festival that highlights the connections between farmers and chefs, fields and tables, and between farm folks and city folks. With a wine glass and linen napkin in hand, guests stroll across a farmer’s field, traveling from tent to tent (sometimes through the barn, past the tractor or around the chicken coop) listening to live music, and tasting gourmet creations from BC top chefs, farmers, fishers, ranchers, food artisans, vintners, brewers, distillers and other beverage producers.
Feast of Fields is a fundraiser for FarmFolk CityFolk, helping to fulfill our mission to cultivate a local, sustainable food system by building a market for local food through celebration. Since its inception, Feast of Fields has only featured local producers, artisans, winemakers, brewers and distillers, and only those chefs that have existing relationships with local farmers and producers. For those businesses Feast of Fields offers a great way to highlight their commitment to local, sustainable food and promote their business to customers that truly love and support the local food movement. As well, for the host farm Feast of Fields provides a boost by introducing guests to their products and their farm.
