10 years of Eat! Vancouver (and a giveaway for a prize pack!)

Writing about food has been a mainstay of my blog, and I have written for a few years now about Eat! Vancouver, which is celebrating this 2012 the first 10 years of continuous celebration.

Hundreds of exhibits to browse, taste and shop! PLUS celebrity chefs, popular local restaurants, wineries, food and beverage manufacturers, cookbook authors, retailers, artisans, and many others from the culinary world will come together for a three day public extravaganza at BC Place Stadium on June 1, 2 & 3, 2012. EAT! Vancouver encompasses unique food experiences, opportunities to learn behind-the-scenes culinary magic from professional chefs, dynamic entertainment through celebrity chef cooking demonstrations and culinary competitions, diverse food, beverage and cooking related exhibits; and of course fantastic shopping opportunities.

To celebrate, I’m giving away a family pack of tickets (4) and spots in a wine-tasting seminar at the Grapes & Hops Presentation Stage hosted by WineDiva Deanna Van Mulligen. Once I draw winners, I will need to know the day & time the winner prefers to do the seminar. All you need to do is check out the program for Eat! Vancouver and tell me what event you would be most keen to check out.

To buy tickets to Eat! Vancouver you can check this link. And to check all the awesome events taking place at Eat! Vancouver check out this link. To enter my giveaway just drop a comment telling me what event at Eat! Vancouver you’ll be checking out (if you get my family pack or regardless, if you buy tickets).

I will draw winners on May 23rd at 2pm. Good luck everyone!

Being that I have started writing my foodie blog a year ago and am having a blast with it, it is hard to choose simply one thing to be excited about. I am excited for the Bite Of Vancouver but I am also super excited to meet all of my fellow Vancouver Foodies.
