Can you believe it’s OFFICIALLY summer? Here in Manitoba we actually have to wait till the summer solstice (aka first day of summer) for it to actually be summer. Even so, last week we were rocking some 5C mornings. yikes.
One of my favourite parts about summer is the festivals and Manitoba is bustling with tonnes of amazing festivals, all filled with oodles of food options. So in the spirit of summer and list making I’ve put together a list of all the amazing Manitoba summer festivals I want to attend + the foods I can’t wait to sink my teeth into.
Morden Corn and Apple Festival
The CNUF is held in Dauphin, Manitoba and puts on a number of different events including dance performances, culinary food demonstrations, and a Ukrainian Marketplace. This is the place to be for all things borsch, garlic sausage, and pyroghy.
Try and say that 10x fast. The Icelandic Festival of Manitoba is held in Gimli, Manitoba from July 31-August 3 and they have SO MANY events to take part in. I’m particularly excited for vinatarta (thin layered cake) from Amma’s Kitchen.
If you’re interested in learning about other popular festivals and food and drink trends you should check out this study that was done by Eventbrite. Fun Fact: Breakfast and Brunch Events took the number three spot (they’re number one in my heart).
Let’s chat! – What food festivals are you looking forward to this summer? Are there some great food festivals I’m missing on my list?
