While we are thrilled people took advantage of our early bird promotion, we understand that others prefer to wait for us to announce our program. If you're one of those people, then we appreciate your patience, as it took some time, but we are now ready to announce not only our Eat Alberta 2018 program, but also when general tickets will be going on sale!
As we finish up our holiday leftovers, we prepare ourselves for the excitement of a new year... and for Eat Alberta 2018! We are thrilled that some of you have taken advantage of our early bird tickets and we plan to put together a fun and informative program for our next flagship event.
However, we need some time to finalize our program and to ensure everyone gets into their ideal classes, so we wanted to let everyone know that Eat Alberta 2018 general tickets will go on sale in early February.
We will continue to provide updates through our mailing list, blog and social media, but if you're planning to get early bird tickets, Sunday is your last chance, so don't miss out!
Eat Alberta is pleased to announce we will be hosting our fifth hands-on food conference on May 2, 2015 in Edmonton, Alberta at NAIT (Main Campus).
Tickets for Eat Alberta 2015 will go on sale March 31st at 10:00 am. Tickets can be purchased from YEG Live. There are a limited number of tickets, be sure to buy early to avoid disappointment!
First up we would like to announce our keynote speaker this year - Takota Coen of Grass Roots Family Farm. Takota will be sharing his unique insight into how permaculture design can save the family farm. He will provide practical examples of how family farms everywhere can use the principles and design methodologies of permaculture to strengthen our local food systems, restore the environment, and ensure profitability. It will be a motivating and insightful start to the conference!
Following the morning keynote, you will be spoiled for choice with a fantastic line up of sessions hosted by local producers, chefs and food advocates. The full listing of sessions is available on our website, which, as fellow food lovers, we hope will excite you! There is truly something for everyone, from pie making to ramen, and cheese education to wild food, we have a diverse and unique collection of sessions that capture the spirit of Alberta’s food community.
We look forward to seeing you at Eat Alberta 2015 conference this year! If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to leave a comment below or via our social media accounts.
