The mission of the Tofino Food and Wine Festival is to promote BC Culinary Tourism while enjoying the company of friends and family of the culinary community. Culinary tourism is an economic driver that helps showcase local restaurants as dining destinations and generates demand for locally grown/raised/caught or processed food and beverage products.
The Tofino Food and Wine Festival began in 2003. It was an idea formed between two foodies who worked in the food and wine industry, at a restaurant set amidst the beautiful Tofino Botanical Gardens.

This festival provides cultural and educational experiences for food and wine lovers from all over, as well as an opportunity to discover sustainable British Columbia food sources. With a showcase of local culinary talent, the festival also provides networking opportunities for cuisine and tourism establishments to form new business relationships and alliances.
The idea for a festival celebrating the marriage of food and wine in the unique setting of a temperate coastal rainforest was, and still is, strongly supported by the community of Tofino, as well as Vancouver Island purveyors and British Columbia wineries.
Most of all the festival fosters a wonderful weekend for friends and family, creating a memorable experience in the heart of Tofino.
