As usual, the folks behind the festival focused heavily on food choices that are healthy, ethical, affordable, sustainable and, of course, local. From fan favourites like East India Company and Stella’s to gems like Habanero Sombrero, Little Bones Wings and Chosabi, there’s something to satisfy literally any craving (including plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options). And because there’s ALWAYS room for dessert, Folk Fest will have plenty of sweet spots on site, including Chocolatier Constance Popp, Chaeban Ice Craem, The Churro Stop and more.

We’re also stoked to see a few of our participating businesses partners on board for this year’s festival. Because the only thing better than supporting local is supporting local AND saving money.
