To me food and how it’s presented is an important part of how people perceive an event or festival. Part of the festival experience is the food and it’s likely the biggest festival expense for a family. If the food being offered is of poor quality, visitors will think the same of the event. I doubt this is the message that most festival organizers want to send to their attendees! I don’t mean that the food has to be at the gourmet level, but I believe that it must be prepared well and have strong appeal for the whole family.
governments and health boards are taking a closer look at outdoor eating
facilities and making vendors prepare their food in a more hygienic fashion.
This answers the preparation concern, but not the appeal. Festival organizers
should screen potential food vendors very carefully to insure the only
reputable operators are allowed to participate. Careful attention should be
made to the types of foods being offered. A wide variety is preferable, not
only for the people attending but for the vendors themselves. In addition to
hygiene and variety, people are demanding healthier and more nutritional foods.

Why an Interview,,,
Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!
