“Taste the Countryside” on September 25

Reading Time: < 1 minute

As a kick-off to fall — and to remind everyone of the amazing and surprising range of food available in our own backyard — the Townships of Woolwich, Wellesley and Explore Waterloo Region are working with local food establishments to host a dining event in the Region’s Countryside from September 25 to October 4.

#TastetheCountryside is a 10-day event where participating businesses offer a delicious prix fixe menu for $15 or $35.

As part of the event, you are encouraged to dine your way through the countryside for a chance to win prizes.

You can enter a ballot each time you enjoy a #TastetheCountryside meal: the more you dine, the more chances you have to win!

To enter a valid ballot, you must post a photo of their meal and share it to Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #TastetheCountryside.

Visit tastethecountryside.ca and follow @TastetheCountrysideWR on Instagram for menus, prizes and locations as they become available.
