Let’s get Thanksgiving started a bit early this year, shall we? 

Thanksgiving is only four days away, which means that incoming turkey coma that you’ve waited all year for is also imminent.

To get Victorians fully in the spirit, Cascadia Liquor Store is hosting a pop-up event to get you ahead of the crowd, and inspired for a weekend full of delicious grub.

The 4-hour tasting brings local food vendors together for an afternoon of mingling and munching that will feature cheeses, meats, ciders, and much more. 

For those who are looking for something to pair with a meal, there will be a wine tasting from South Okanagan’s Tinhorn Creek. 

Additionally, there will be cider samples for those who are not big into wine. 

Come hungry, and leave with new ideas on what to prepare for the fall feast, as well as, a full stomach of samples. 

Haven’t bought a bird yet? 

You’re in luck, there will be a frozen turkey giveaway that could save you some money or maybe double up what you can have for Thanksgiving. 

Curious about what food to expect at the event? Here is the list of the partnered food vendors:

  • Fol Epi Yates 
  • Haus Sausage Co.
  • Cold Comfort
  • The Shrubbery Company
  • Cafe Fantastico Dockside Green 
  • The Hot Whistle Cheese Company
