There’s no need to travel across Ontario to find the best butter tart this season, now when all the best bakers specializing in the iconic Canadian treat are getting together under one roof.

The Kawarthas Butter Tart Taste-Off takes place in downtown Port Hope this year on September 22, alongside Cultivate: A Festival Of Food And Drink.
