On Sunday May 19, 2019, join the Chefs' Table Society of British Columbia for a celebration of an iconic BC product at the annual Spot Prawn Festival.
The Festival is the Chefs' Table Society's annual Fundraiser allowing us to give scholarships and cover our operating costs.
You have THREE ways to enjoy it:
FREE – access to the docks, view cooking demos and more
$12 – 10 oz of Chowder – to go if you want!
$60 – Spot Prawn Brunch – grazing style with a tasting menu of 6 delicious spot prawn dishes
The same family-friendly festival remains with live cooking demos with some of Vancouver's top chefs! Fun for the kids! Live music! And more!
While the festival is free, in order to enjoy any of the delicious food prepared by our chefs, tickets are required.
This is the Chefs' Table Society's main fundraising event so it can continue to provide education, mentorship and sustainability initiatives across the province.
Instead of the traditional boil, a delicious bowl of award-winning Chowder from Chef Welbert Choi served with bread from Terra Breads.
Our chowder, created by chefs, is full of flavour!!
Ticket for the chowder with a freshly baked bun is $12 a bowl (plus tax and service) and if you want, you can take it to go!
NO LONG WAIT!!! Choose to enjoy your Chowder in one of the following time slots:
- 11 am to 12 pm (noon)
- 12 pm (noon) to 1 pm
- 1 pm to 2 pm
- 2 pm to 3 pm
The time, clearly indicated on your ticket, should be respected! Please note that showing up early for your time will not give you earlier access and that showing up late might make you wait longer.
