Our Indigenous Long Table Feast are on Friday, June 22nd.

Saturday, June 23 & Sunday, June 24, 10 am to 6 pm

Indigenous Culinary Samples and Cooking Demonstrations Available all Weekend!

From local streams and forests to the frozen tundra of the arctic, and from the shores of Labrador, our Indigenous Chefs will take you on an Indigenous culinary adventure unlike anything you’ve seen in Ottawa. Caribou from Nunavut, Seal from Labrador, Duck and fish from Ontario, Pacific Salmon from British Columbia and fruits and baked goods from the Prairies. You will have the opportunity to sample elegant bites from across our vast lands and learn to appreciate our deep connection to our traditional territories. Live cooking demonstrations and traditional teachings on Indigenous harvesting will keep the Pavilion lively all weekend long. Featuring culinary demonstrations by Chef David Wolfman (Cooking with the Wolfman) from his new cookbook and traditional workshops on preparing seal (with tastings) by Trudy Metcalfe-Coe.
