New Features At Fork & Cork

Windsor’s food and wine festival kicks off for the third straight year at Windsor’s Riverfront Festival Plaza tonight.

Fork & Cork Organizer Chris Mickle thinks this could be the most well-attended event yet, thanks to a number of new features. One of which is the Blackburn Tasting Stage, where Food Network Chef Bob Blumer will be serving up summer cocktails. “Rino’s Kitchen’s going to be doing some cooking demonstrations. The crowd is going to be encouraged to participate in these demonstrations, and taste and sample all of these things.” Mickle adds there’s also more for kids and teens this year with the addition of arts and crafts, mini-putt and a video game station.

Gates open at 5pm, with the Cowboy Junkies headlining the music stage later in the evening. Saturday’s headliner will be The Tea Party.

Fork & Cork tickets are $5, with some of the proceeds going towards the Canadian Cancer Society.
