Wakamow Valley Authority is excited to announce the return of the annual, mouth-watering Festival of Flavours event on Thursday September 21. The tasty fundraiser, now in its 14th year, is being held at an exciting new venue and also earlier in the year than usual as Ailsa McKeen, Event Coordinator at Wakamow Valley explains:

“We felt that it would be good to change things up this year and were thrilled when Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa generously offered to host the event. Their banquet room perfectly complements this event and will provide guests with more space to mingle and enjoy the delicious food and drink provided by the talented vendors.”

Anita Minter, Sales and Marketing Manager at Temple Gardens added: “We are excited to host Festival of Flavours this year for Wakamow Valley.  They give so much to our community, providing a beautiful unique outdoor space for everyone in Moose Jaw to enjoy, we wanted to help out in any way we could.  Festival of Flavours is a natural fit for us, we all love good food!”

Guests can enjoy specialty dishes and drinks from an array of restaurants, cafes, and liquor companies and listen to live music all under one roof while raising money for a local community project.

Proceeds from this event, will go towards replacing the 30 year old wooden structure in Connor Park with an innovative Pro 4000 Challenge Course designed for teens and adults. The first of its kind in Moose Jaw, the Connor Park Challenge Course will be a fun, interactive obstacle course that provides opportunities for kids and adults alike, to engage in healthy play, friendly competition, socializing and physical activity.
