The festival that puts your taste buds in the driver’s seat returns for our 32nd fabulous year, featuring all your favourites, plus some exciting new additions.


When purchasing any pass, you can also add on our exciting new vices

CARNIVORE: Our charcuterie experience is curated by Ottawa’s own Seed to Sausage. Grab your personal charcuterie board and sample their award-winning fermented salami, pancetta and guanciale, simple sausages and an array of deli style and smoked meats. Everything is individually made by hand.

CHEESE VAULT: Back by popular demand and curated by Maître Fromager Afrim Pristine, the Cheese Vault unlocks the secrets of cheese with 20-minute primers–before you get to sample up to two dozen unique varieties from four different countries. Feeling indulgent? You could sample over a pound of cheese on your visit!

CHOCO-CHIC Do you love chocolate? Who doesn’t? Brand new this year, Choco-CHIC is the ultimate chocolate experience. Beloved local chocolate maker, Rochef Chocolatier, is creating a chocolate fountain, chocolate wrapped fruit, fondues, pairings, truffles, bars and barks.  Let the mouthwatering goodness begin!
