Food! Fabulous Food!
Not only is The Filberg Festival famous for showcasing fine arts and crafts and for celebrating homegrown musical talent it is also known for a delicious variety of food and beverage offerings.
We love that many of our vendors use ingredients to support local farmers and growers. They are also great role models in reducing their environmental footprint by offering biodegradable cups, napkins, and cutlery and most condiments are offered in reusable containers. To help achieve a goal of zero waste, they use and encourage recycling on the grounds.
Food trucks from Victoria, Courtenay, Campbell River and the Gulf Islands apply each year to secure a spot for our festival.
This year, we welcome back Yummies & Gyros, Canada’s Best Mini Donuts, Bobs Burgers. BaBa Gannouj and Dragon Bowl. New trucks this year include Extreme Eatz, Crispy Fish, Farm Gate (new owners) Thrifty Foods, Taco Fixings, and Asian Eh?!
Need a beverage? White Caps Cappuccino or Royston Roasting offer hot or iced coffee and more. Lemon Heaven is back to squeeze lots and lots and lots of lemons to quench your thirst with hand-pressed fresh lemonade.
And chill out with handmade frozen treats by Mexi Pops. Enjoy their local yogurt pops, organic fruit pops or a mango, chocolate dipped banana, or pineapple wedge on a stick.
The Filberg Summer Kitchen offers fresh, delicious lunch and snack options as well as local beer and wine.
