Fork and Finger Foodie Event Returns to Downtown Langley

Calling all Fraser Valley foodies, this is a celebration of tasty eats that you don’t want to miss.

The 2nd Annual Fork & Finger Foodie Event returns to Downtown Langley on Saturday, Aug. 23, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., providing a unique opportunity to gather with fellow foodies and celebrate all the amazing and unique local restaurants in Downtown Langley.

Having spent the majority of my 20′s living in Langley City, I can tell you there are numerous amazing eateries in the downtown core. From quaint mom’n pop diners  and ethnic cuisine that will blow your taste buds away to trendy dining hot spots, there is no shortage of options.

The Fork & Foodie Event is your chance to explore these hot spots and be in the running to win over $1,000 in Downtown Dollars through the Fork & Finger Passport Program. The latter runs now until Aug. 23rd; customers can pick up their passport at participating restaurants as well as the Downtown Langley Business Association office.

When you dine at one of the participating establishments, you’ll receive a stamp. Visit a minimum of three participating restaurants and be entered to win Downtown Dollar giveaways totalling $1,000! Completed passports can be left with participating restaurants or brought to the McBurney Plaza on August 23rd and personally put it in the draw barrel.

On the day of the event (Aug. 23), there’s plenty to see, do, learn and taste. Here’s a roundup of what’s happening.
