Food Giveaways

Preview/Giveaway: Food Tickets to Lexus South Pointe Fall Food Festival (2016)

I think most would agree that the best events are ones with great food.

If you make that food local, have proceeds go to charity, and host the party in a cool venue then you’ve really got yourself a great event!

That’s what we can expect on Sept. 22 at Lexus South Pointe‘s Fall Food Festival!

The event features food from a bunch of great local chefs and supports a great cause: YWCA Edmonton‘s domestic violence prevention and recovery program.

Lexus South Pointe reached out to see if I was interested in helping promote their first fall food festival and I happily obliged.

Hope to see you at Lexus South Pointe 830 100 St. on Sept. 22, 2016 for their Fall Food Festival!

This is how the event will work:

  • Show up! It’s from 6 – 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 22 at 830 100 St SW.
  • Be given 5 free food tickets
  • Choose to buy more free food tickets (with proceeds supporting the YWCA)
  • Visit different booths and redeem your tickets for glorious food!

These are the local restaurants involved:

It’ll be a great, delicious event showcasing some of our city’s fine chefs and all for a great cause!

I’m excited to help promote the festival.

Lexus South Pointe is always trying to be involved in the community and I think they really put it best when they told me ‘what brings people together better than great food?’

They plan on making the Fall Food Festival an annual event and something I didn’t know: I guess Lexus South Pointe regularly hosts other events throughout the year too – most of them free of charge with free food.

To help drum up some awareness for the festival, I’m giving away 20 Lexus South Pointe food tickets and a bottle of wine (which will be redeemed at the event).

Enter below and RSVP on the Lexus South Pointe Facebook Event here!

They also have an Eventbrite page where you can register so they get an idea of head count, but it is free to attend with the first 5 tickets per person free, you just have to buy additional food tickets while supplies last!


Enter to win:

  • 20 Lexus South Pointe food tickets
  • 1 bottle of wine

  • The new @onopokecoyeg on 104 Street is bringing authentic Hawaiian poke to the Prairies. 🐠🐟 Soft open Friday. Grand open Saturday. Bright, light and lots of great flavours here. ❤️ I had a lovely time meeting Executive Chef Lawrence & Sous Chef Matt tonight at a #Poke party sneak peek, and hearing about the #OnoPokeYEG team's trip to the Islands - eating, learning and bringing the culture & cuisine back to Edmonton. Aloha! 🤙🏻

Tonight, we feasted at @rostizado_yeg with our friends Jack & Nicole from Medicine Hat + @yourbestfred & @catherine0626! 🙏🏻🙌🏻 Always get the platter. Always get the roasted cauliflower. Always get the churros. 🤤 Literally, everything we had was delicious but those are always my fav.
