Thank You for Participating in Taste of 17th!

From Nov. 20 to Nov. 29, the 17th Ave Retail & Entertainment District hosted their first ever Food Festival, the Taste of 17th, with 19 amazing restaurants, bakeries and food establishments from within the 17th Ave BIA who wanted to showcase the many different dining options along 17th Ave. The participating restaurants included local favourites such as The Living Room, Calcutta Cricket Club, Ollia Macarons and Tea, and Butterblock, to name a few, and each participating restaurant put forth a three course menu, a promotion around a classic staple, or a brand new dish and appetizer only available during the event.

A Chance to Experience the Amazing 17th Ave Restaurants

 The first 1,000 people who registered received a $25 gift voucher to use at the participating restaurants on their Taste of 17th menu items. All registrants tried delicious appetizers, main dishes and desserts at these participating businesses, who served up yummy goodness throughout the week. Participants were able to indulge in everything from freshly baked bread, an authentic Mexican casserole, an entirely plant based burger to a smokehouse lasagna and much, much more.
