Spring has sprung and planning is in full swing for another great Stone Soup Festival. This much loved East Vancouver tradition provides an opportunity for the local community to celebrate food together. This is our 15th year of celebrating spring, food, the environment and importance to the health and ‘culture’ of our community.
Join us for food, information tables, music, artist tables, mini farmers market, speakers, kids activities, and more!
