We tweak the menu each year, although we’re committed to serving your favourites. We’re beginning to confirm what’s on for Sept. 17, 2016, including the selection of pies!

Pro tips:

  • “Whole pies” usually sell out first or second.
  • 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

  • Back Bacon on a Bun [On the very last day of August, Simon stepped up to put the pork into the loaf!]
  • Borscht
  • Chicken Legs from a BBQ
  • Cold Drinks or Coffee
  • Corn-on-the-Cob
  • Homemade cookies… these were new in 2015 [as of July 23, we’re looking for a co-ordinator]
  • 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 (cut pieces) (see the list below for the types of pies)
  • Popcorn… the Kettle Corn returned for 2015
  • Rosettes… really good with the freshly-made ice cream
  • Salads with fresh ingredients (not pre-packaged days in advance)
  • Sausage with sauerkraut
  • Sloppy Joes (vegetarian or meat) [confirmed for 2016]
  • Spring Rolls

Due to popular demand – one comment – we’ve sourced gooseberries! Thanks, Deborah… and thanks, Joe, for the nudge.

In 2016, we’re taking a break from Apple Fritters and from Cheese.

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