If you haven’t had the time to dip into some Tri-City cuisine, this is the weekend.

Sunday, March 10 is the last day of the Taste of the Tri-Cities — a food and beverage festival that features set meals and deals at 76 eateries in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody.

Organized by Tri-Local, a collective that includes:

  • Tourism Coquitlam
  • City of Port Coquitlam
  • City of Port Moody
  • Austin Heights BIA
  • Downtown Port Coquitlam BIA
  • Tri-City News

the 2024 Taste of the Tri-Cities has seen success since the program launched Feb. 16, said Chloe Wan, strategy director with the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce.

In fact, a video marketing push by a food blogger for one participating restaurant netted more than 100,000 views and attracted new diners, she said.

“The owner was so happy,” Wan told the Tri-City News, noting the business, Kosho Sushi Japanese in Port Coquitlam, offered a seven-course set menu for $35.

Besides the influencers’ and media spotlight, food followers have also taken a shine to the contests and gift cards the festival is promoting.

Talks are already underway to make the 2025 festival bigger, Wan said.
