Butter tart flavours that you may come across include plain, raisin, pecan, walnut, Skor, maple, bacon, coconut, chocolate covered, PB&J, s’mores, gluten-free, vegan, and so many more. The combinations are practically endless!

This is also a great opportunity to shop local and support businesses in Midland. Some will offer festival sales and deals you can’t pass up.

In addition to butter tarts galore, festival-goers will also enjoy live music, shopping from local vendors, food trucks, buskers, and entertainment.

To tie it all together, the festival includes a contest to award the prize for the best Butter Tart in Ontario – judged by celebrities, chefs, food and travel bloggers, and local dignitaries.

This family-friendly festival will also feature a kids’ zone, free shuttles, and a butter tart trot.

We can’t wait!
