Anything that celebrates food and drink is a festival worth checking out. In the Niagara Region there is the The Grape & Wine Festival. Another goodie is the Spirit of Toronto. But of all the ones I’ve been too, the Food & Drink Fest in Hamilton is my absolute favourite!
Last year was the first time we attended, I couldn’t wait for this year (I joined the Facebook event in December I think!). It was where I tried my first sip of the delicious Kracken rum, sampled my most fave scotch and the first time I saw the Cupcake Diner truck! What I love most is that it celebrates ALL food and drink, not just wine or scotch (there are even some non-alcoholic options).
I am looking forward to this night so much that I want to share it with you! Fortunately, courtesy of Shannon (from event organizers, Beau Monde Productions), I have AMAZING give-aways on my blog

All you need to do to win is let me know what your most favourite drink is – it doesn’t even have to be alcoholic (I know there are non-alcoholic vendors at the event as well).
