2017 Food Vendors Announced

2017 Food Vendors Announced

Food vendors for the 2017 Winnipeg Folk Fest announced!

We know food is important to you and it’s important to us too! Not only do we work hard to bring you food that tastes good but also to bring you food that makes you feel good.

We bring vendors to the site that share the same values for Local, Organic and Fair Trade (LOFT) products. Having you feeling good is important to us so you can enjoy the music all weekend. We are excited to offer you a wide variety of delicious meal and snack options that are local, diverse and affordable to help you enjoy the full festival experience. And of course, we want food that is sustainable and minimizes waste for our beautiful environment.

New Food Vendors

You asked for it, and we delivered! Jardins St-Léon Gardens is the friendliest place on earth to get your fresh local produce to snack on at the festival. Serves local, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.

Dying for a Poke Bowl? Chosabi has got you covered! Home of the sushi burrito, Chosabi is fast, casual and fresh. Their food is something you won’t want to miss! Serves local, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.

Looking for a chicken wing fix? We’re excited to have Little Bones Wings on site this year! And do we even need to tell you about how delicious the deep-fried pickles are? Little Bones Wings offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. 

We go nuts for Bronuts! And so will you! Bronuts is a family-owned Winnipeg bakery and they put their love into making doughnuts from scratch every day. Using local and organic ingredients whenever possible, they serve up direct trade and vegetarian goodness – with a vegan option made special for the festival!

Returning Favourites

We’ve got Gramma’s Kettle Korn, coffee from Green Bean Coffee Imports and the ever-popular Whales Tails. For something to munch on in the campground, we have tasty treats from Jonnies Sticky Buns and organic fresh fruit and vegetables from Food for Folks.

If you’re looking for cool sweet treats we’ve got Chocolatier Constance Popp with milkshakes, popsicles and ice cream cookies and find POP CART on site or in the campground where you can grab a yummy handmade ice pop! Find a treat for you AND your little ones at Forbidden Flavours by the Family Area with coffee and hard ice cream. We’ve even got Kawaii Crepe a sweet and savory hand-held treat! And to quench that thirst on a hot summer day, make sure you stop by Lemon Heaven for a fresh-squeezed lemonade.

In the mood for some lip-smacking BBQ? Check out Classic Car-B-Que in the Tavern for some local and gluten free BBQ options. Lovey’s BBQ & Smokehouse will also be onsite named one of 12 best BBQ restaurants in Canada by Food Network Canada! And if you’re looking for meatless BBQ we’ve got Boon Burger on the menu with one of the most popular veggie burgers around.

Need something quick and to go? Grab a fresh local burrito from Burrito Splendido, a hot dog from Skinners or a fish taco from The Walleye Wagon. If you’re feeling like a little taste of home grab some Better Than Baba’s for handmade perogies and cabbage rolls.

For some more worldly tastes be sure to grab a bite from East India Company, KYU Grill-ed skewers with Japanese toppings, a taste of Greece at Santa Lucia Greek, Santa Lucia Pizza and Thai cuisine at Sukhothai. In the campground, you’ll find authentic African cuisine at Simba Safari Grill and for those pizza cravings, The Red Ember
