This year’s menu will feature 30 restaurants offering customers the opportunity to enjoy culinary items ranging from the classics to international cuisine.

Admission is still free but to limit points-of-contact and improve the guest experience by reducing time spent waiting in line, organizers said tokens will no longer be used and payments will be credit or debit.

In the past, organizers have said the event is one of the province’s largest annual attended festivals, attracting more than 100,000 visitors a year.
