Tofino Food & Wine Festival 2010

june 5-7, 2010june 5-7, 2010June 5-7, 2010

The 8th Annual Tofino Food & Wine Festival takes place in the Tofino Botanical Gardens, with associated events being hosted by participating Tofino restaurants

the letter 'T'The Tofino Food and Wine Festival began in 2003. It was an idea formed between two foodies who worked in the food and wine industry, at a restaurant set amidst the beautiful Tofino Botanical Gardens.

The idea for a festival celebrating the marriage of food and wine in the unique setting of a temperate coastal rainforest was, and still is, strongly supported by the community of Tofino, as well as Vancouver Island purveyors and British Columbia wineries. This festival provides cultural and educational experiences for food and wine lovers from all over, as well as an opportunity to discover sustainable British Columbia food sources. With a showcase of local culinary talent, the festival also provides networking opportunities for cuisine and tourism establishments to form new business relationships and alliances.

The Tofino Food & Wine Festival also hosts a Silent Auction Fundraiser at the main event, specifically for the Tofino Community Children's Centre, an invaluable service for local families providing much needed child care and healthy structure for our children. The centre, operated under the umbrella of Tofino Parks & Recreation provides an enriched program for children attending the centre.

The festival also promotes education and professionalism in the hospitality industry, promoting culinary and sommelier programs as well as Slow Food, a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization dedicated to recognizing the importance of pleasure connected to food in conjunction with agricultural biodiversity.
