Butter Tarts are an iconic baked good here in Ontario and festivals devoted to the sweet treats have become a beacon for provincial pride.
Now in its second year, this Butter Tart Festival (located just 45-minutes from Toronto’s downtown) returns for a full day of bake-offs and vendors from across Ontario hawking their finest treats at a diverse marketplace located at the Pickering Recreation Complex.
The festival in Pickering is just one of many emerging festivals, tours, and tasting opportunities centred around the Canadian delicacy.
When: February 10, 9 am to 4 pm
Where: Pickering Recreation Complex, 1867 Valley Farm Road, Pickering
