Famous Flavours Fest
The 19th Edition of Vankleek Hill’s famous Festival of Flavours returns Sunday, September 11, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be 65 food booths representing 22 different ethnic cuisines, desserts, coffees, tea, and, of course, Beau’s Award-winning craft beers.
The menu includes Himalayan dumplings, Argentinian empanadas and Montréal smoked meat.
Sample an infinite variety of fine foods: sausages, lemon tarts, pulled pork, ice cream, wine, Greek yogurt, smoked fish, Indian curried chicken, Thai spring rolls…the list goes on and on. There is a fun booth with face painting for kids as well.
Treat your taste buds all along the street, then choose a favourite and then sit down at the famous 320-foot-long lunch table.
Drinks are available everywhere thanks to the S.D.G. 57th Highlander Cadets and the 2017 “Return to Vimy” students from Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute. For more, Facebook, www.vankleekhill.ca/events, or call Phil at 613-678-5086.
