From September 29 to October 8, 2022 we invite you to celebrate the Fall Harvest in Waterloo Region’s countryside

#TastetheCountrysideWR is back and this time we’re celebrating the Fall Harvest. This 10-day dining event promotes delicious menus that incorporate local
produce as prepared by food establishments located in Waterloo Region’s townships.

Rural food establishments are invited to submit a Prix Fixe menu that can be purchased for dine-in and/or takeout during Taste the Countryside. Locals will be encouraged to dine their way through the countryside to taste each delicious fall-inspired menu through a Region-wide promotional campaign.

This year’s #TastetheCountrysideWR event will focus on supporting “local” through the celebration of the fall harvest and togetherness after being distanced for two years. Find out more about this year’s event at by clicking the link below.
