In order to cut down on wait times, this year the crew at Spot Prawn Fest have designated four separate serving times that will be clearly marked festivalgoers’ individual tickets.

These times are:

  • 11 am to noon
  • noon to 1 pm
  • 1  to 2 pm
  • 2 to 3 pm

Organizers of Spot Prawn Fest urge patrons to arrive at the time designated on their ticket, because they will not be serving any earlier.

All the proceeds from ticket sales will support the Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia. This event sells out every year, so be sure to get your tickets and secure your spot for this prawn-devouring occasion.
