This weekend, May 7 & 8, 2016 Almonte has something for everyone!
The sun will make an appearance so it should be wonderful weather to take in the many activities going on. Whether you are an art lover, liking all things made by hand, or a Batman, Superman or Star Trek fan, you will find something to amuse you and the whole family.
Pêches et Poivre – Food Sampling
At Pêches et Poivre, Alvaro and David, two Spanish men who work directly with the producers in Spain, will be on hand to tempt you with Spanish olive oils and canned seafood and answer questions about these tasty treats!
We will also have several artisanal cheeses out for you to taste.
