Fall Food Festivals in the Maritimes

Food FestivalThe northeastern seaboard of Canada is among the world's most colorful  regions from which to view vivid fall foliage splendor. In the fall, when affordable agricultural fairs and culinary festivals showcase local produce at the peek of freshness, it's the perfect time to stretch your budget and give event attendees a taste of Canada's maritime provinces. Here are a few examples.


Newfoundland and Labrador

Fall agricultural fairs take place throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. For example the Agrifoods & Garden Show takes place in mid-September featuring healthy cooking demos, farmers' markets, and root cellar showcases.

Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.)

Fall Flavours Festival

Every year, during the fall, a month long culinary extravaganza showcases the tastes of P.E.I. Canadian celebrity chefs provide cooking demonstrations. Restaurants throughout the island showcase the best of what P.E.I. has to offer with special set menus. 

Groups that prefer a hands-on approach can participate in deep sea fishing with an on-board BBQ of the catch of the day, clam digs, lobster parties on the beach, and beer brewing. From clam bakes to oyster harvesting to opportunities to catch lobsters and prepare them at lobster boils, the whole province comes alive unique culinary events with a local flavor.
