We tweak the menu each year, although our volunteers try hard to keep serving your favourites.

Pro tips:

  • “Whole pies” usually sell out early in the morning.
  • Quilt bidders eat before noon, because that’s when the auction begins.

Come early; some food sells out by early afternoon. Black Creek Pioneer Village opens at 10am; there’s lots to see and do (and eat)!

To eat while at the Toronto Mennonite Festival – updated September 2018

  • Apple Fritters
  • Back Bacon on a Bun 
  • Bread – homemade
  • Chicken Legs from a BBQ
  • Cold Drinks or Coffee
  • Cookies
  • Corn-on-the-Cob
  • Ice Cream (watch it being made!)
  • Latin American foods… not sure exactly what will be served this year, but likely to include Empanadas and Samosas
  • Pies (slices) (see the list below for the types of pies)
  • Rosettes… really good with the freshly-made ice cream
  • Salads with fresh ingredients (not pre-packaged days in advance)
  • Sausage with sauerkraut

    Can you please tell me whether there will be any gooseberry pies at the September 17th Toronto Mennonite Festival at Black Creek Pioneer Village?
