Festival Roundup: The Joy of Food

August 26, 2022

It’s edible! It’s art! Our festival of free arts and culture programming across Ontario is packed with events that will fill your belly and spirit. Learn about the value, history and fun of food with these events happening next month.

For lovers of history and Indigenous culture, we recommend a visit to Tamara Green of Indigenesis — a former ONCD Creative in Residence — in Scugog, as she prepares historical Indigenous cuisine using pre-contact ingredients. Or you can make an weekend out of Minto’s delicious programming, in the small and mighty town northeast of Kitchener and Guelph. For elsewhere, check out what’s cooking below in a city near you!

The Ontario Culture Days Festival is a provincewide and month-long event offering exclusively free arts and culture programming. With over 1000 events to enjoy, there’s something for everyone. Find an event near you
