Incredible Edibles Festival

“If you eat, you’re in”, is the catch phrase of this inaugural not for profit event being held in scenic downtown Campbellford, ON, on the Trent Canal. The focus of the Festival to increase public awareness of what’s available in the area as well as sustainability of our local farms. Over 40 vendors will be set up to sell a varied selection of foods obtained and/or made locally. Bison meatballs, cheese galore, goat cheese chocolate truffles are just a few of the items awaiting you.  A fun day for the whole family and a wonderful way to enjoy the Trent Hills area. Festival date is Saturday, July 12th, from 10am-4pm. FREE ADMISSION! Check out their Facebook page for all the updates!

I can’t wait for the Incredible Edibles Festival in downtown Campbellford. I am especially looking forward to the food but on top of that there is a goat race which I am imagining as hysterical and then there is the non stop live music all day and fascinating speakers, one of which is speaking about making perserving cool again and why we need it, and of course the gentleman speaking of the increased use of insects for protein in our diets,,,,,,not too sure about that one. Anyway looking forward to an amazing day
