FESTIVAL BITES- Saturday, October 27

Day 5-Get Moving

As we near the end of the festival, we want to acknowledge the importance of balance. After all, life can’t always be about enjoying a week of creative cocktails and gourmet meals (or can it?!). That’s why we partnered with Bicycle Nova Scotia, We’re Outside and Support 4 Culture to bring festival-goers the first-ever Mayor’s Bike Ride. Mayors Sandra Snow (Kentville), Peter Muttart (Kings County) and Jeff Cantwell (Wolfville) will lead a three-hour bike ride at 9:30am. Join in the relaxing ride from Wolfville to Kentville and out to Starr’s Point. The perfect way to start off Day 6!

A Taste of Mi’kmaq Traditions

Glooscap First Nation partners with Benjamin Bridge for our sold-out event, Beyond Terroir at 11 am today. This mid-day event at Benjamin Bridge Vineyards will teach you about the pre-European history of the Gaspereau Valley region in Mi’kmaki (Nova Scotia). The Mi’kmaq have harvested, foraged, gathered, hunted and consumed food in their traditional territory for thousands of years. Mi’kmaq chef Kari Rose Lameman, in collaboration with Chef Blair Lebsack and filmmaker Kevin Kossowan, will serve up a taste of culture and history paired with Benjamin Bridge wines.

Jazzing Up Vegetarian

In this culinary workshop for the socially-conscious, Founders House Executive Chef Chris Pyne (Annapolis Royal, NS) will show you how to elevate your vegetarian dishes to please even the most discerning diner. Does celeriac linguine with wild & cultivated mushrooms, truffle butter, goat cheese mousseline, and confit shallots sound good to you? Thought so. Join us at 1:30 pm today to kick up your vegetarian game.
