Simcoe – The Norfolk County Agricultural Society is pleased to announce that “Eat & Drink Norfolk” voted as a finalist for “Best New Event” in Ontario is back for its fourth consecutive year. Dates for this year’s event are Friday April 12th starting from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm and open again on Saturday April 13th from 12 noon until 10:00 pm.
Eat & Drink Norfolk provides an opportunity to come out to a relaxed atmosphere in the AUD at the Norfolk County Fairgrounds, to see and visit with friends while you “mix and mingle”, visiting food and beverage displays with each offering many unique food products available right here in Norfolk County.
Last year’s show was a great success, with great feedback from the many people who attended, as well as from the many participating exhibitors who were excited to showcase their food or beverage through tasting tickets and sampling which is the key component of Eat & Drink Norfolk. “The best of what Norfolk County has to offer is showcased all under one roof. It is a must see!” Says Special Projects Manager Chantal Zorad.
Many well known local and area restaurants and food producers are back again, plus many new exhibitors have expressed interest, with over 40 different exhibitors participating. This year will feature cooking demos by local favourites, the Fairly Fat Guys. Musical entertainment is available both days of the show. Grey Sky will perform on Friday night and Saturday afternoon and The Mushy Peez will perform on Saturday evening. Silent auctions with many great items will go up for bid on both days as well.
Admission tickets are priced at $9, and are available at the door. Food and beverage tasting tokens will be available at the show for just $1 each. Each sample at the show will cost between one and four tickets. On Saturday between opening at noon and 3:00 pm., a special admission price is available providing two admissions for the price of one.
“Eat & Drink Norfolk” is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the many great food and beverage products in Norfolk County, all in one location, in a casual relaxed atmosphere.
