Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Taste of Edmonton 2013 media launch and hearing first hand about some of the cool events they are planning as well as getting a small sample of the items that will be on the menu during the event. This year’s media launch took place in the Art Gallery of Alberta, which is one of my favorite places in the city, the lobby area is a great space for events like this and the natural light that comes in is perfect for photos!
So last week, I managed to get invited to the Taste of Edmonton media launch held at the Citadel Theatre – I don’t know that this is ever going to happen again so let’s do a quick chair dance of awesomeness. The Taste of Edmonton, which runs from July 19-28, 11am – 11pm, is reaching out to the online community in (I guess you could say) a more active way for the first time, so a bunch of Edmonton food bloggers were invited to attend the media launch on June 20. Sadly, the launch was from 11:30AM – 1:30PM and a lot of my fellow bloggers weren’t able to make it due to work commitments (luckily I have a relatively flexible schedule – yay for being a student/PT employee?), but I did run into Lillian from Beyond Umami and Michelle from The Tiffin Box (formerly known as Food, Football and a Baby) at the event.
