This will be the Fair Trade event of the season, bringing together Fair Trade (chocolate & wine) and local foods (cheese & beer) to showcase the best of Ottawa and beyond. The evening will include speakers, special guests, city councillors and representatives from various organizations. The evening will include a silent auction and local businesses will be on hand, showcasing their Fair Trade wares for purchase.
This will also be a fundraiser for Fair Trade Ottawa Équitable and Ottawa’s showpiece of Fair Trade Fortnight, launching Fairtrade Canada’s “Take a Step” Campaign.
Guests receive a complimentary drink with entrance. Along with a classic drink selection including Fair Trade wine and local beer, we will also be serving specialty mixed drinks that use Fair Trade coffees and teas as bases.
Early-bird tickets are $25 and can be purchased on our tickets page. Tickets will be $30 at the door.
