Tofino Food and Wine Festival
June 3, 2016 - June 5, 2016Price varies
TOFINO, British Columbia – The annual Tofino Food and Wine Festival celebrates the marriage of food and wine, with the main event, Grazing in the Gardens, showcasing local culinary talents and more than 60 British Columbia wineries at the Tofino Botanical Gardens.
More than 60 members of the British Columbia wine industry will be pouring, including Arrowleaf, Black Widow, Blue Grouse, Garry Oak, Gehringer Brothers, JoieFarm, C.C. Jentsch, Lake Breeze, Tinhorn Creek and Tightrope.
The festival began in 2003 as a small, local event, and has since grown into a destination weekend for out of town guests. Grazing is a chance to mingle with Tofitians, meet local chefs, purveyors, winemakers and more. Set in the rainforest, its surroundings provide a grassroots ambiance combined with pleasant surprises throughout the winding paths. It is truly a memorable weekend, and a wonderful way to experience the West Coast.
Accommodation partners include Long Beach Lodge, Pacific Sands and Jamie’s Rainforest Inn on the Inlet.
During the years, Grazing in the Gardens has supported several nonprofit organizations and initiatives, such as Tofino Botanical Gardens Foundation, Community Children’s Centre and Tofino’s Community Garden, Wickaninnish School PAC Garden Revitalization, Lighthouse Trail and Multi Use Path (MUP).
