The festival shuts down Beaverton�s Victorian-era main street on August 11, lining it with long tables so that hungry crowds can join in a feast of delicious barbecued meat, harvest-fresh vegetables and homemade pie!
Diners are serenaded by local musical talent as they eat, and have the opportunity to visit unique shops and an art show in the historic town hall.
“The event is 3 years old and this year we are building a new aspect linking four of our local restaurants with local producers to produce a sampling menu for the day�s event” said Christine Dukelow, one of the festival organizers.
Brock’s Big Bite will feature tables covered with bright red and white checkered cloths stretching along Simcoe Street and creating a welcoming lunch setting.A� “It encompasses the downtown of our little town.A� The street will be closed and tables will line the street with bright umbrellas!” said Christine.
But the fun doesn�t stop there! Beaverton�s harbor will explode with gunfire as re-enactors stage a mock battle from the war of 1812.
