What’s better than enjoying delicious food from the Fraser Valley? Enjoying it next to the beautiful Fraser River.
You can do exactly that at Feast on the Fraser from September 23rd to October 2nd. Encapsulating various events across the ten days, there will be something to suit everyone’s taste (pun intended). There are tastings, cooking classes, dinner cruises and more on offer.
It’s the second time round for this event, after a successful first run last year. It’s a fantastic chance for both New Westminster’s locals and visitors to taste some of the delicious flavours the Fraser Valley.
The event, which has ticket prices ranging from $25 to $65, is the result of a partnership between the City of Westminster, Downtown New West Business Improvement Association, Starlight Casino, Techno Monkey Media and River Market.
“While New Westminster is already well known as a food destination in the Lower Mainland, this is a great way to showcase the city’s diverse restaurants – and flavours of the Fraser Valley – in a tasty and creative way,” said Tej Kainth, executive director of Tourism New Westminster.
Among the more than 20 local restaurants and businesses taking part are Steel & Oak Brewing Co., The Boathouse Restaurant, Royal City Farmers’ Market.
Some highlights of the extensive program include:
- An opening reception at the River Market on September 23rd.
- A dinner cruise enjoying the sights of the Fraser River at the same time as a Fraser Valley menu.
- A longtable dinner in Tipperary Park, thanks to Royal City Farmers’ Market and Fiesta Catering.
