Spring Into Spice, the outdoor ethnic food and wine festival is BACK!


Our 2024 Spring Into Spice open air food and wine festival is a one day extravaganza with 30 food and wine vendors, incredible DJs, deep-dive food and wine seminars, and most of all incredible denizens of Ontario, representing all walks of life and cultures.

If you celebrated with us at the festival last year then you know this is one not to be missed.

The face of our community is changing, has changed, and gives cause to celebrate our country's diversity, including acknowledging our food culture and expanding the purview. Pairing ethnic food with wine from both the old and new world is another expression of our diversity. It allows us to bring different cultures together with the opportunity for discovery, including understanding the historical significance of food culture in other countries.

The Spice Food & Wine series gives everyone a chance to build their own narrative around wine and, more specifically, wine and their national dishes regardless of background and race.  We dispel the myth that wine cannot be paired with many ethnic foods due to food preparation and cooking methodology.  Moreover, we aim to spur conversation on why the myths exist in the first place, which leads to a broader discussion on world history that was aimed at creating a divide.

The team behind the Spiced Food & Wine Series are individuals from the African-Caribbean Diaspora. Their passion is wine, and their heart is in spreading that love of wine to their respective communities. 


What is wine if not something to be shared with a community over food, merriment, and togetherness? 


This is done in support of cognitive diversity in wine.
