Due to lack of ticket sales, we have had to cancel our Lucky to be Local Event. We’re super disappointed, first because we wanted to have an opportunity to connect with our supporters over good food, and second, because this would have been a one-of-a-kind evening. Nowhere else in Saskatoon would you get to experience this mix of chef talent, businesses committed to local food, and local producers in one room. 15 tables with appetizers, plus drink samples, for the price of admission.
We are committed to supporting our local businesses, so this was not set up as a trade show. We had arranged to pay producers for their products, and chefs for their expenses to attend the event. Which is why we needed a certain number of tickets to make it work. We apologize for the inconvenience to our suppliers and chefs, as well as to those who had purchased tickets. Refunds will come later today.
We understand it’s a difficult time to be holding events, so next time we’ll apply lessons learned and give everyone some more lead time for planning and promotion purposes.
I love the connections I got to make just in planning the event, and the good will is palpable. And I know some new connections were made between chefs and suppliers, which I hope will continue. Watch for events coming up in the Fall!

Up to 3 of us would have gladly attended but we’re into busy farm
seeding now and so not good timing for such an event for us.

Thanks Marc, I appreciate that! We had originally wanted to schedule it before seeding but the launch got delayed. We will definitely try to keep it out of the seeding window on our next try!
