Festival celebrates province’s main condiment

August 16, 2015 by  

The 9th annual Great Saskatchewan Mustard Festival is coming to Regina this month.

The event celebrates the fact that 75% of all the mustard produced in Canada is grown in the province, and it is also one of Saskatchewan’s leading exports.

Visitors will have the chance to sample a variety of kinds of mustard and then vote on the best, with its maker receiving the yellow chef’s coat.

Among the 28 chefs who will be competing for the prize are Chef Adam Mazer, Joel Sopp, Michelle Ducie, and Chefs Elysia, and Natasha Vandernhunk. In addition, food will be provided by more than 22 local establishments, including the Coney Island Cafe, Hotel Saskatchewan, and Flip/Salt.

There will be musical entertainment provide by the Pile of Bones Brass Band, and beer gardens for the adults.

Foodies from all around Regina will no doubt want to give this festival a visit. To advertise, organizers often invest in products from local brochure printers. These can then be inserted in local newspapers or mailed out inexpensively.

The Great Saskatchewan Mustard Festival is being held at the Willow on Wascana on August 30. Admission is $25 for adults, and by age for those aged 18 and under (for example, a 14-year-old will pay $14). To find out the latest information about this event, contact Greg at 306-586-2337.
