The Harmony Arts Festival is proud to present the 8th annual event that pairs delectable restaurants with local wineries in a competition that celebrates the best that BC has to offer.
An inaugural celebration, Indigenous Feast, at the Harmony Arts Festival has been added. The evening will bring a festive atmosphere to the Ambleside Landing in the form of a scrumptious gathering. Opening with a blessing of the food, visitors will then feast their senses on a live contemporary jazz performance by Murray Porter and a curated menu by Salmon n’ Bannock. The menu includes traditional dishes such as barbecued sockeye salmon, poached halibut, smoked oolichan in a blanket, bison berry ribs, three sisters salad and dessert.
The 8th annual Best of the West, sponsored by Grosvenor Americas, returns to Ambleside Pier with an explosion of fun and flavour. This year is the chef’s choice, with 12 of the Lower Mainland’s best restaurants selecting their own wine pairings to compete for culinary greatness. The winning pair will capture the coveted title of Best of the West.
