Revelstoke, November 04 – On Saturday, November 23rd Community Connections will be hosting its fourth annual SOUPALICIOUS Revelstoke at the community centre from 12-3pm as the kick-off activity for Welcome Week. SOUPALICIOUS Revelstoke 2019 will gather together over 10 local chefs showcasing one of their yummiest soup creations to celebrate this year’s harvest. In alignment with the original intent of this event, SOUPALICIOUS Revelstoke is a zero-waste event. Visitors should bring their own bowl and spoon.
The soups, snacks and drinks that feed this event are wholly created by local restaurants and community groups.
Participating to date are:
Taco Club, Chubby Funsters, Village Idiot Bar and Grill, Food Connect, Aboriginal Friendship Society, Revelstoke Local Food Initiative, Coast Hillcrest Hotel, La Baguette, Mt. Begbie Brewery, Nomad Food Co.
A $10 admission fee (free for kids 12 and under) allows you to enjoy a medley of locally created soups. Tickets will be available at the door. The funds raised will help the Community Connections Food Bank to purchase healthy options for those in need. Family and friends can gather together to share a delicious meal and enjoy this family-friendly community event.
Support for this event has been generously provided by the City of Revelstoke, Interior Health, Keri Knapp Photography, the Kids Table, the Marketing Collective, and the Potter’s Guild. All waste will be collected by the North Columbia Environmental Society.
Many volunteers are needed to run this event. Contact Community Connections at
