This summer, Right Some Good—North America’s original pop-up food festival—will be held in both Halifax and on Cape Breton Island. The world-class food festival will kick off in Halifax from June 27 to June 29 and move on to Cape Breton from July 3 to July 5.
Right Some Good, partnering with Destination Cape Breton, is excited about the new twist for 2014. The festival will literally hit the streets of Halifax and for the first time in almost 15 years, access to Spring Garden Road will be open to pedestrian traffic only for the day.
Event founder, Pearleen Mofford, has teamed up with the Spring Garden Area Business Association to put on a foodie event never before experienced in Halifax.
“We’re thrilled about bringing a day-long culinary celebration and all that is local, to Spring Garden Road,” said Nancy Tissington, executive director of Spring Garden Area Business Association. “Our community and tourists will get to experience Halifax’s main commercial street in a new way and we are even more excited that Right Some Good will provide incredible food and entertainment.”
Right Some Good brings in world-class chefs to work alongside local chefs and aspiring junior chefs to experiment with local ingredients and create one-of-a-kind menus.
“We’re about extraordinary, unexpected and local, and this year won’t disappoint,” said Mofford. “You’ll never guess some of the venues we’ve come up with for this year’s pop-up dinners.”
Right Some Good on Spring Garden will offer gourmet street food, and a culinary stage where six rounds of chefs, including 12 international master chefs traveling from across Canada, the United States and the Caribbean, will compete live. A second stage will feature some of the best Cape Breton talent starting at 10:30am. The day will be complete with sidewalk sales from the Spring Garden shops and a market area. Open to all ages, this is a free event with food tickets sold on site.
Right Some Good on Spring Garden takes place June 29. The event returns to Cape Breton July 3-5. For more information visit rightsomegood.ca.
