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!
- “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)!

- Back Bacon on a Bun [On the very last day of August, Simon stepped up to put the pork into the loaf!]

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.
