Throw off the effects of the drab, rainy weather and welcome Spring by attending one of Hamilton’s premier food and drink events: The 8th Annual Food & Drink Fest….the Festival with Taste! The 2012 Fest takes place from April 12 -14th at Careport Expo Centre, located at 270 Longwood Road South in Hamilton (On the corner of Aberdeen and Longwood. Take the Aberdeen exit off the 403). If you’ve never been to the show you are in for an amazing culinary and “liquid” experience, and if you have attended you have an idea of the delights that await your palate and your senses.

Over 150 of Hamilton, Niagara, and Halton Regions’ most popular restaurants, artisan bakeries craft breweries and wineries will be displaying their finest products…just for you!

Once inside Careport Expo Centre you’ll be given a complementary wine glass. Your next step is to buy sample tickets to spend at the various booths. For $10.00, you’ll receive 12 tickets and for $20.00, you’ll get 25 tickets. Keep in mind that most samples will “cost” 1-6 tickets.

Take your time to make the rounds of the booths to see what is available, and remember to enjoy the music, live demonstrations and the vibe from the rest of the crowd while you are there.
