About The Festival


Tofino Food and Wine Festival is a weekend of food and wine events on the west coast. Its signature event, Grazing in the Gardens, is a showcase of local culinary talent and British Columbia wines, craft ciders and beers, set in the beautiful Tofino Botanical Gardens. Grazing is a chance to mingle with Tofitians, meet local chefs, island purveyors, regional winemakers and more, complemented with edible treats and libations. Lush rainforest setting surroundings provides for a grassroots ambiance with pleasant surprises throughout the winding garden paths. It is truly a memorable event, and a wonderful way to experience the west coast.

Since 2003, Grazing in the Gardens has supported several non profit organizations and community initiatives, including Tofino Botanical Gardens Foundation, Community Children’s Centre and Tofino’s Community Garden, Wickaninnish School PAC Garden Revitalization, Lighthouse Trail and Multi Use Path (MUP). In 2018, this event is continues to be a fundraiser for the Tofino Botanical Gardens Foundation, with a Silent Auction benefitting the Wickaninnish Elementary School Garden Project – Stage 7.
