Venue: Berkeley Church
OKTOBERFEAST is a charity food event that was hosted in collaboration with the Canadian Cancer Society, Ontario craft breweries/wineries and gourmet food vendors. All proceeds from the tickets and food purchases went towards raising funds to combat cancer! The event was held at the Berkeley Church on Queen East.
Decked out with lighting decor and purple ambiance, OKTOBERFEAST was lined up with different food and drink vendors throughout the church. A few of my favourite vendors were: Kanpai Snack Bar (I loved the Og Bao), Pizzeria Defina (a variety of pizzeria available), and Cheesewerks (for the cheese lover in me!). I also got the chance to try a drink from Walter Caesar (quite spicy because of the pepper!) and Lake Wilcox Brewing Company. There was a great balance of breweries and food vendors alike that were enough to cater to everyone's taste. I do wish there were a bit more food vendors, but that's just me being picky!
The event was a success and overall there were good times for a good cause!
