November 9 – 10, 2011
Ottawa Convention Centre
Yes, my culinary and wine aficionados, the 2011 Ottawa Wine & Food Festival is coming back in November. The website does not include much information… but we gathered some information from the exibitor package:
A VIBRANT NEW VENUE,
AN EXCITING NEW FORMAT
25 YEARS IN THE MAKING! The Ottawa Wine & Food Show will this year move to the spectacular new Ottawa Convention Centre. This exciting new facility replaces the Ottawa Congress Centre which was home to the Show for twenty-two years. Now with twice the space, this state of-the-art building in the heart of downtown is the perfect venue for the rebirth of the Show as the Ottawa Wine & Food Festival. This 5-day celebration will take the wine and food experience that Ottawa has come to love over the past 25 years to a whole new level. And it will provide exhibitors and sponsors with an expanded format and enriched programming in a spectacular new venue that will comfortably accommodate larger Ottawa audiences that have clearly demonstrated they’re ready for more.
QUICK FACTS ABOUT THE NEW FESTIVAL FORMAT
• The Festival will kick off on a Wednesday and continue through Sunday, with a greatly expanded line up of tasting events and learning opportunities.
• The 3-Day Consumer & Trade Show will remain the cornerstone of the new Festival.
• New Programming will include an expanded Tutored Tastings series, People’s Choice Award , Local Farm tours, Guest Sommeliers and Chefs, and more.
