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.
The participating producers in this year’s event include 14 breweries, 10 wineries, 5 distilleries and 3 tea producers, and a selection of the best-known names in local food, such as Arc at the Fairmont, The Pointe Restaurant at the Wickaninnish Inn, Fable, Forage, and Colette Grand Café based out of the iconic Holt Renfrew.
Feast of Fields is FarmFolk CityFolk’s annual local food celebration and fundraiser, highlighting the contribution local chefs, restaurants, farmers, ranchers, fishers, food artisans, vintners, brewers and distillers make to our local economy. It emphasizes how they are connected to the land, support the regional economy, and create the most delicious local, seasonal and sustainable flavours BC has to offer. FarmFolk CityFolk is a not-for-profit society that works to cultivate a local, sustainable food system. Proceeds from Feast of Fields support the continuing efforts of FarmFolk CityFolk in each of the regions where the events are held.
