Calling all foodies and anyone with tastebuds!

Canada’s biggest food and drink festival is back, and there’s still time to get tickets. 

The T.O. Food & Drink Festival will take place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre with 3 days of incredible food, drink, culinary demos, shopping, and music.

You can even soak up some culinary wisdom while you’re there, with demonstrations from both local and celebrity chefs!

Here’s a rundown of what to expect at the T.O. Food & Drink Festival.

What To Expect

Chef’s Stage

It’s cooking demos, taken to a whole new level. Watch how the pros do it as you experience the very best local and celebrity chefs cooking live on stage. 

Some big names include Michael Hunter, Mark McEwan, Romain Avril, Erica Karbelnik, Eva Chin, and Noel Cunningham.

Mixology Class

Bartenders will have nothing on you! Attend one of the on-site mixology classes and learn how to craft seasonally selected cocktails. Pair ingredients and mix flavours like an expert and impress your friends with the perfect cocktail next time you’re hosting.

Live Music & DJ Lounge

If you need a little breather between all that food, chill out at the Delicious Vibes Lounge. There will be live performances by DJs Jahmal Padmore, IAMSETDOE, and Ace Dillinger.

Wines of the World

Meet the makers behind local and international wine brands! Learn about the ingredients and processes that create complex taste profiles. By the end of it, you’ll be well on your way to being a true sommelier (rhyme unintended).

Food Trucks

Of course, your favourite casual bites HAVE to be at the T.O. Food & Drink Festival! Enjoy selections from some of the city’s most beloved food trucks for street eats that hit just right.

In addition to all that, you can explore tons of demos, contests, photo ops, exclusive shopping, and more throughout the festival!
