7th Annual Fiesta Buckhorn
The 7th Annual Fiesta Buckhorn will take place on Saturday, July 19 from 1
pm to 8 pm at the Buckhorn Community Centre. Visitors will have the chance to
sample the wares of award-winning wineries, breweries and local area chefs and
restaurants - all in one place. As well, this year, there will be a number of
special interest exhibitors, including the Ontario Provincial Police, the Canadian
Diabetes Foundation, the RCMP and the Central Ontario Viniculture Association.
Dr. Bob Niver, one of the founders of Fiesta Buckhorn and an active participant
on the volunteer organizing committee, is proud of the success of the event.
"What began as an idea to raise money for the community centre has really
taken off! This year, we expect even more beverage exhibitors," he says.
For an admission fee of $10 per person, each Fiesta visitor gets a keepsake
wineglass for sampling and six free sampling tickets. As well, there are additional
sampling tickets available at the price of two for a dollar. Depending on the
beverage or food item, a pre-determined number of sampling tickets will be required.
"The profits from the show go directly to the Buckhorn Community Centre,"
continues Niver. "It's an innovative way to raise money for a great facility."
This year's event will also feature free informational seminars about wine:
- 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm: "Everything You Need To Know About White/Red
Wine" conducted by Richard Best, member, Wine Writers Circle of Canada
- 2:30 pm and 4:30 pm: "Fun with Wine" conducted by Cathy Ruggieri
Davidson, a product consultant with the LCBO
Of course, there will be free entertainment provided throughout the day by
Felix and the Swing Cats, the Mike Graham Trio and the Dr. Bruce Evans Jazz
