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 seem almost 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.

Besides the butter tarts, you’ll also have the chance to indulge in eats and purchase goods from about 200 vendors and food trucks lined up in the downtown core and waterfront.

And to tie the event 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!
