Check Out Foodie Events in Van City this September

Food is huge part of ANY culture and many of us have fond memories associated with it; be it the smell of Grandma’s baking to family dinners over the Holidays to a cookout over an open flame when camping.

With how complicated life is nowadays, we all seem to be seeking comfort in food; be it the ones we grew up with or recreating an amazing dish that you had on a vacation or using those items that you bought from a foreign market stall.

Food is a huge part of a destinations appeal as dining out is growing as a pleasurable experience and the atmosphere and occasion are a major part of this experience just as much as the food itself. Many of us these days when we travel seem to seek out the tastes of the place that we are in and not just the usual sights and sounds.

When you come to Vancouver, you will see that we have a truly vibrant and thriving food scene going on be it all the urban farms, artisanal foods, the incredible fish & seafood to the explosion of craft breweries/distilleries and vineyards.

You can become a local at one of these unique events and can create your own food memories to take back home and share amongst friends.

Here are some Foodie events to look forward to in September!
