Signature Weekend the ‘grand finale’ of the 2019 BC Seafood Festival

The BC Seafood Festival is underway throughout the Comox Valley region and the Signature Weekend is almost here.

Now is your chance to grab your tickets to events and tours and prepare to enjoy the bounty of our oceans all week long and during the BC Seafood Festival Signature Weekend, June 14 -16.

What is the BC Seafood Festival Signature Weekend? Only the largest seafood celebration of the festival, perfect for foodies who love B.C. seafood and spirits, music lovers, and families who want to learn about the oceans and seafood. This year, some all-time favourite events are back for you to completely immerse your senses into all things seafood.

Signature Weekend Highlights include:

• Shucked – June 14: kick-off the festival in style at this premier TGIF happy hour! BC’s most prominent oyster producing families & businesses show off as they shuck perfectly plump, sustainably slurp-tastic oysters at roving, longboard stations. Sit back and explore the unique characteristics and flavours of BC’s one-of-a-kind coastline. PLUS the always entertaining Shucker Paddy will join us to show off his Guinness Book of World Records shucking skills!

Baked and Boiled Kitchen Party – June 15: Break out the fiddles when East Coast meets West Coast at a good old-fashioned seafood boil! Simmering pots will chock-full of local shellfish. Plus craft-spirit tastings and, of course, plenty of music from The WhiskeyDicks!

• Bounty! A Brunch Seafood Cookout – June 16: This ain’t your typical Sunday brunch! Grab your besties and come rub shoulders with top seafood chefs Chef Nathan Fong, and Chef Quang Dang, 2018 BC Chef Challenge Winner, who will guide you through the creation of a seafood dish and share all their best tips and tricks!

The World is Your Oyster Masterclass – June 15: If you’ve never shucked oysters before you now have the opportunity to learn from Guinness Book of World Record holder Shucker Paddy during his hands-on cooking class. And, get your little ones cooking in the Kids Seafood Cooking Classes for both 5-12 years and 10-15-year-olds Kids from 12-18 can “Learn to Shuck” by registering for classes when you buy the adult day pass or Signature Weekend tickets to attend. Classes for kids are free.
