When the weather outside gets frightful, Vancouverites celebrate with food festivals! We’ve got hot chocolate, food trucks, and for the second year, the Vancouver Soup Festival presented by Vancouver Foodster.
Vancouver Soup Festival
Until February 2, 2020 participating restaurants will feature different soups each week and you are invited to visit, order, savour, and then VOTE for your People’s Choice favourites from each week’s offerings.
Vancouver Foodster will have 3 sets of winners each week. You can pick your favourites based on originality, creativity, uniqueness, traditional, non-traditional, price, value and most importantly taste. Vegan, gluten free, noodles or none, spicy or creamy – have fun trying them all!
