Saskatchewan Food Festivals 2009

Hog Fest, June 26, Englefeld.
The 38th annual event. What else would you expect of a town with a giant pig?
Saskatoon Berry Festival, July 4, Mortlach.
The second annual, and it looks like it will be a fantastic event.

Cherry Festival, July 25-26, Bruno.
Plus a cherry cheesecake literary event on the 24th.
Rhubarb Festival, August 2 & 3, Marr Residence, Saskatoon
This historic pioneer house celebrates this hardy prairie "fruit".

Wheat Festival, August 7, 8 & 9, Weyburn.

The website still shows last year's event, but you get the picture.

The Great Canadian Mustard Festival, July 25-26, The Willow on Wascana, Regina.Chefs face off in the mustard challenge, and you're the judge! Several restaurants also feature mustard on the menu. The event doesn't seem to have a website, but there's some info on the SaskTourism site.Wild Blueberry Festival, August 21-22, St. Walburg.
The whole town gets involved so there's lots to see and do besides blueberries.

Pumkin Festival, end Sept., Pilger.
Giant pumpkin contest (see photo) and pumpkin lunch.

Chokecherry Festival, Thanksgiving weekend, Lancer
Going on 39 years now. Here're some photos from a past

Hi Amy Jo,
Just noticed your blog, and thought I'd mention that I like your pieces in Prairies North - I've contributed a few myself, mostly in the wildlife section. Great job on the blog, too!
