Loosen your belt: this drool-worthy food and beverage festival is Canada’s largest, and it’s back for its 12th year. Dig into the city’s local flavour with appy-sized dishes from Vancouver restaurants at the Bites pavilion, and wash it down with sips from the region’s breweries and wineries. Need to give your belly a break? Shop the 250 booths at the marketplace, learn a new cooking skill or meet celebrity chefs such as Rob Feenie (pictured). An expo dedicated to eating, drinking and being merry? Sign us up.
