Tourism Awards of Excellence Gala


TORONTO — The Tourism Industry Association of Ontario announced the winners of this year’s Ontario Culinary Tourism Awards of Excellence.

The awards — which were announced as part of the Ontario Tourism Awards of Excellence Gala — recognize those dedicated to advancing the culinary tourism movement in the province and work to support and tell the stories of its growers, producers, chefs, winemakers and brewers.

This year’s recipients included the Taste Real Guelph Wellington Local Food Fest, which received the title of Ontario Culinary Tourism Event of the Year. The event also honoured Niagara Culinary Tours and Norfolk County, receiving the Ontario Culinary Tourism Experience Award and the Ontario Culinary Tourism Leadership Award, respectively.

“We’re equally thrilled to announce the winners of the Ontario Tourism Awards as we were the finalists. It’s just such a good group,” said Rebecca Mackenzie, executive director, OCTA. “The achievements of our industry and those championing locally grown and made food and drink this year really show the breadth of talent, expertise and passion on offer in our province.”
