Pairing up one of the Canada's signature destinations along with a stellar array of culinary events and adventures - this is my kind of festival!

So happy the Food Festival coincided with our trip to Waterton! Enjoyed a lovely cruise on the lake (Mother nature cooperated with amazing weather - almost no wind!), with some of the most awesome pies we've had in a while, and a tasty meal from the Taco Bar. Then headed to the Lions Hall for THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST by the Waterton Teenie Weenie Theatre Co, which was the the icing on a perfect day (we'll definitely be back on a day trip to see one or more of their other shows this summer - JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, and HISTORICAL HYSTERICS: AN OLD FASHIONED MELODRAMA). Looking forward to next year!

We took our family to the food festival which meant going through the lunch menu's deciding which place would meet the palets of 6 adults and 2 children we found out that the menu as defined by the food festival was not available because they ran out of food ???? Very disappointed

Came down from Edmonton for the food fest. We had a great time on the pie cruise and the thirsty social! Keep it up!
