Great Food. Great Fun. Great Cause.

An afternoon at Taste

Enjoy a delightful afternoon under big white tents on the grounds of St. Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph sampling the works of some of the most talented and creative food and beverage providers in Guelph and the tri-cities area. Over 50 of the region’s best chefs, craft brewers, and vintners will be serving an array of delicious food and drink to please the palate. A true foodies’ event all in support of the care of the patients and residents at St. Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph – you won’t want to miss out. To see our Food and Beverage participants, click here.

 The fun doesn’t stop there…

 In addition to our chefs, vintners and brewers, Taste of Guelph will also feature live music from The Black Water Trio. They will be playing a variety of songs with different stylings from popular artists like The Eagles, The Beatles, Mumford and Sons, and Serena Ryder, to name a few.

Check out our live auction offerings and bid on some exciting prizes and experiences! Last year’s prizes included a one year truck lease, stunning jewelry collections, sports packages, and more.

And don’t forget to stop by our Prohibition Pantry to purchase a numbered cork for $50. Every cork is a winner, there are only 200 available – we have some great prizes to be won.
