We Won, We Won

 

The Celebrity Chefs at Lloydminster's second annual Harvest Feastival

We just received some fabulous news about Harvest Feastival. Corinne at the Lloydminster Agricultural Exhibition Association had submitted Feastival into a competition put on by the Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions (C.A.F.E). The convention was in London, Ontario last week and Harvest Feastival was declared Best In Show, Small Fair!  According to the C.A.F.E. brochure , “The Best of Show Award recognizes a new event, program, concept or technique introduced to the public.” We could not be more pleased. It is a great event to be part of and great to get national recognition. Feastival could not happen without all our excellent sponsors and volunteers. Last year we had the support of the Saskatchewan Association of Ag Societies (SAASE)  and this year the County of Vermilion River. Producers that have participated over both years are The Cheesiry, Lower Shannon Farms, Trinity Farms  and Kathy’s Greenhouse. Other contributors including Emjays, Flying Rabbit Fruit Farm, Elk Valley Farms, Aaron Hougham, Darlene Pickford, Chris Hooper and Beetnik Borscht. Kudos to all.
