Here’s what participants had to say about last year’s event:
"The 2015 Ontario’s Southwest City Fare event was one of the highest energy and engaging tasting events the Arts & Cookery Bank has participated in. The energy flowed from set-up to tear down. The consumers who attended the event were energized and so were all the Ontario's Southwest vendors. The venue (exposed bricks and steel beams) encouraged easy interaction; we found the 1-on-1 opportunity to chat to bloggers a huge benefit. The attendees really wanted to learn about the taste offerings; asking great questions about the source and production of the selections. These types of "pop up" shows create a tremendous way to generate a wonderful buzz about Ontario's Southwest and our food & drink scene. On a personal note, The Arts & Cookery Bank was able to leverage our participation at the event by reaching out to the bloggers we met. We contacted the 23 bloggers to
introduce them to our Food Fight Extravaganza held in the summer and their posting helped us receive over 40,000 hits on social media! We've already signed up for the 2016 event!"

"I loved meeting all the great vendors at the Ontario’s Southwest City Fare. It was a great way to connect with local businesses, taste their food & wine offerings, and hear their stories. As a travel writer it was great to connect with them all in one place and I look forward to visiting them and writing about them in the future."

“City Fare was an event like no other. The event, an excellent showcase of what Ontario’s Southwest has to offer, was an eye-opening experience for those in attendance. Burning Kiln Winery was excited to showcase our VQA wines for media and wine enthusiasts from the Toronto area. We jumped at this opportunity to entice visitors and media to our emerging wine region and look forward to the upcoming 2016 event!”
