Stir it up. Smell it in. Slurp it up. Repeat.  Foodies rejoice! It’s time for the Sensational Soup Off.

This is a unique tradition every bit as good as turkey, but it warms your heart  … and that of the community.



Bring your appetite! Enjoy a bowl of soup from your choice of up to 18 soup-makers, as they compete to become the “Super Souper” of the Year.” The goal to create a flavourful dish using as many locally-sourced ingredients as possible:

These super soup-makers are competing in there respective categories:

  • professional
  • amateur
  • youth

Voting will take place during the event and prizes will be awarded. For more information and an application form to take part in the Soup-Off competition please visit our contest page.


You can purchase hand-crafted “Empty Bowls” generously donated by local potters, available for purchase upon entry.

This year, entry to soup-off is only $15.00 for adults, $5.00 for children under 12 and $35.00 maximum for a family of two adults plus children. There will also be a dazzling display of one-of-a-kind bowls and glasses, donated by local artists and available for only $25.00.
