Get ready to eat until you can’t stand. An amazing free event is coming to Vancouver that will be bringing some of the best British food from around Vancouver to one spot this weekend. From cheesy potatoes to fish and chips, the British Isles Heritage Festival 2020 is where it’s at. If you weren’t hungry before, you definitely will be now.
Vancouver always has amazing food-themed events and this weekend is no different.
On Saturday, February 22, you can hit up a foodie event that is totally free.
The British Isles Heritage Festival will be bringing to Vancouver some of the best English, Scottish, Irish, and Welsh food.
While the food will be amazing, the more wonderful part is that you won't have to travel all over downtown for it.
This event is set to take place at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s north plaza. That means there will be over 20 food vendors all in the same place.
You can literally get anything from mini donuts and pizza to fish and chips and seafood. We can already see you drooling.
According to the public event page on Facebook, the day-long event will be kicking off at 11 a.m. and running until 4 p.m. so you can get both lunch and dinner in one glorious place.
Along with the amazing eats will be live entertainment including Scottish and Irish music and dancing.
The Vancouver Courier has released a complete list of the food vendors and we have to admit, our mouths are watering right now.
The complete list is as follows:
- Bannock Booth II
- Italia Bakery Truck
- Mini donuts
- Oyama Sausage Co.
- Flying Fish N Chipper
- Cheezee Does It

Anyone who attends this festival is encouraged to dress on theme. That means clothes, caps, badges, and flags of the different British isles countries are encouraged.
If this event sounds up your ally, we suggest going with a group of friends. That way, you can try as much of the food as possible.
You can even cap the day off with some drinks at one of Vancouver’s most mind-blowing cocktails labs if you’re willing to ball out.
