VANCOUVER — Local restaurateurs, wineries, food and beverage manufacturers, cookbook authors, retailers and artisanal food creators are gearing up for the 10th annual Eat Vancouver food and cooking festival, which runs from June 1 to 3 at B.C. Place Stadium in Vancouver.

The weekend event will feature various events, including competitions on the celebrity stage. Chef Rob Feenie of Cactus Club restaurants will cook alongside TV’s Bob Blumer and David Rocco.
