Food festival


Visitors to the festival are encouraged to arrive by shuttle bus or bike.

Food fare table is set

This year, the Guelph Wellington Local Food Fest is getting hands-on with a variety of skill-building workshops offering people the chance to learn about everything from backyard chickens to baking homemade bread.
The annual festival, which takes place on Sunday June 22 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre, is a celebration of local food in Guelph and Wellington County that attracts about 2,000 people every year.
The festival features more than 50 vendors, exhibitors, live music, tractor rides, kids activities, tours, demonstrations and workshops, a news release said.
People are invited to bring their shopping baskets and picnic blankets and have a local-food lunch.
Those over 19 will also be able to try some of the local craft beer on offer from Wellington, F&M, Royal City, Block 3 and Grand River breweries.
Visitors to the festival are encouraged to arrive by shuttle bus or bike, and the first 50 of these visitors will receive a small thank-you gift. A Red Car shuttle will leave from downtown on Quebec Street beside the Bank of Montreal and from the Shelldale Centre.
Admission to the festival is by a minimum donation.
