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.


Instead of the traditional boil, a delicious bowl of award-winning Chowder from Chef Welbert Choi served with bread from Terra Breads.. Our chowder, created by chefs, is full of flavour!! Ticket for the chowder with a freshly baked bun is $12 a bowl (plus tax and service) and if you want, you can take it to go! NO LONG WAIT!!! Choose to enjoy your 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.


A wonderful idea for an outing on the long weekend: a brunch featuring a tasting menu with 6 delicious spot prawn dishes showcasing the many ways this delicacy can be served.  Dishes will be prepared by 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 and beer, as well as coffee from from Mogiana Coffee..

Two services are available: 11:30 am to 1 pm AND 1:30 pm to 3 pm.

Different chefs will be cooking at each of the 2 services.

Ticket for the brunch is $60.00 per person (plus tax and service fee) and includes a delicious tasting menu consisting of six spot prawn dishes, wine and beer samples, from Terra Breads, a coffee from Mogiana Coffee  and treat to end your meal.

Also not to be missed, our COOKING DEMO STAGE from 11:00 am to 2h30 pm showcasing some of BC’s finest chefs demonstrating various spot prawns recipes.


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.   Cheers, Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia
