What’s to Eat? Vancouver Folk Music Fest

The 33rd Annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival gets underway this weekend, starting off on Friday evening with musicians performing from all over the world thru Sunday night. This is one of my favourite music festivals, I have attended 28 festivals over the years! Each year, as much as I look forward to the music I also look forward to the food. Here is a run down of what to eat at the fest this weekend:
