Come hungry for this Langley festival!

Fork Finger returns to downtown Langley Aug. 24

If you’re visiting downtown Langley this Saturday, come hungry!

The Downtown Langley Business Association presents Fork & Finger, the annual festival of local food, Aug. 24, offering tasty fun for the whole family.

“While many food festivals focus on a particular kind of food or drink, Fork & Finger celebrates the many amazing restaurants in Downtown Langley. Every year we hear that visitors have found their new favourite restaurant, or a hidden gem they didn’t realize was right in their own community,” says Teri James, DLBA executive director. “With your Fork & Finger Passport and $5 Samplers, you can try something new at an affordable price, and we always hear that people can’t believe how big the portions were!”

(Hint: When you get full – because you will! – purchase a few extra $5 Samplers to-go and enjoy them for dinner!)

“One-third of the restaurants featured on the Fork & Finger Passport have not participated before. The word is out that this is a great event to be a part of!” James says.

It pays to come early:

Stop by the DLBA table in McBurney Plaza to pick up your Fork & Finger Passport and a list of restaurants, or visit online to plan ahead!

Visit the $5 Sampler locations and for each purchase, you’ll receive a sticker. Collect at least three stickers and return your Passport to McBurney Plaza by 4 p.m. to be entered to win a share of more than $1,000 Downtown Dollars!

The DLBA is also providing $5 sampler coupons to the first 250 people who pick up their Fork & Finger Passports. Use your coupon to purchase a $5 sampler at any of the participating Fork & Finger restaurants, which are reimbursed for those coupons by the DLBA.

And to satisfy your sweet tooth, Discover Langley City is sharing free cupcakes from Lemon Bakery, while supplies last!

Delicious demos

Live demonstrations will again feature local products available from businesses in Downtown Langley, including All of Oils and 1 Fish 2 Fish, and whenever possible chefs feature locally sourced products.

Returning favourites include Kevin Legge of Big Dog BBQ, who’ll be grilling all day and handing out samples. “Kevin was a huge hit in 2018 and he really adds a lot to the event with his knowledge and love of all things barbecue,” James says.

Cooking up awesome entertainment

Head to the live demo stage in McBurney Plaza to catch award-winning celebrity chef Spencer Watts, whose impressive resume includes TV shows Fish the Dish, Watts on the Grill and Spencer’s Big 30, all airing in 30+ countries around the world.
