What People Are Saying About Us
The day at the 3rd Annual Coconut Festival was incredible. We tried so many foods, received samples to take home, watched some great performances, and had a fun day at David Pecaut Square.Karen Food blogger at stenoodie.com
It was a great venue with lots of vendors that really believed in their product and some that had conservation in mind. The highlight for me was the yummy Thai green curry bowl from Pai which was only $5! Delicious. Lots of coconut water samples. It helps that it was a beautiful sunny day.Lara P. Chick Sergeant, Toronto
The festival is in the small open area near King and John street. Entertainment! People on stage! Music and dances!! So adorable. Very children-friendly. And delicious food!!!! Lots of vegan options, lots of pro-health options.Kathy H. Food Blogger, Hong Kong
