Spot Prawn Festival


Chefs’ Table Society’s Spot Prawn Festival

On Saturday, May 12, 2018, join the Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia for a celebration of an iconic BC product at the 12th Annual Spot Prawn Festival.

This year, the Chefs’ Table Society’s Spot Prawn Festival has reinvented itself, and you now have THREE ways to enjoy it:

    1. FREE – access to the docks, view cooking demos and more
    2. $10 – Spot Prawn Chowder – to go if you want!
    3. $60 – Spot Prawn Brunch – grazing style with 6 delicious appetizer size dishes

The same family-friendly festival remains with live cooking demos with some of Vancouver’s top chefs! Fun for the kids! Live music! And more!

While the festival is free, in order to enjoy any of the delicious food prepared by our chefs, tickets are required.

This is the Chefs’ Table Society’s main fundraising event so it can continue to provide education, mentorship and sustainability initiatives across the province.


NEW THIS YEAR! instead of the traditional boil, a delicious bowl of Spot Prawn Chowder served with bread from Terra Bread.

Ticket for the chowder is $10.00 a bowl (plus tax and service) and if you want, you can take it to go!

NO LONG WAIT!!! Choose to enjoy your Spot Prawn Chowder in one of the following time slots:

11 am to 12 pm (noon)
12 pm (noon) to 1 pm
1 pm to 2 pm
2 pm to 3 pm

The time, clearly indicated on your ticket, should be respected! Please note that showing up early for your time will not give you earlier access and that showing up late might make you wait longer.

Also new this year! A wonderful idea for Mother’s Day weekend: a grazing event to enjoy six delicious spot prawn dishes that showcase the many ways this delicacy can be served.

Dishes will be prepared some of BC’s finest chefs, a nice way to sample various creations and for you to say hello to the chefs as you move between the food stations and savour samples of wine from  Evolve Cellars or beer from R&B Brewing..

Two services are available:

11:30 am to 1 pm
1:30 pm to 3 pm

Ticket for the brunch is $60.00 per person (plus tax and service fee) and includes six spot prawn appetizer-type dishes, wine and beer samples, bread from Terra Breads, and a coffee and treat to end your meal.

The Spot Prawn Festival is made possible due to the generosity of our sponsors, who have been with us since the beginning and some new friends we made along the way:

Tickets always sell out and space is limited so to avoid being disappointed, don’t wait, buy your tickets as soon as possible.

Share this event on Facebook and Twitter.. We hope you can make it! Cheers,Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia.
