Last year, Granville Island’s locally-inspired bistro Edible Canada at the Market hosted Street Eats and Beats, their inaugural Festival Under the Bridge. Over 1,500 Vancouverites packed this unique outdoor shindig, celebrating local talent as well as our city’s burgeoning food truck scene. Inspired by the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, this year’s festival, Edible Canada House, is expected to be the biggest Olympic party in Vancouver. Relive the glory of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games!
Tucked underneath the Granville Street Bridge in the heart of Granville Island, Festival Under The Bridge is once again part of CMHC’s annual Winterruption Festival running from February 14 to 16. Along with live music (including both DJs and bands), Edible Canada House will showcase a number of live and pre-recorded Olympic events provided by event sponsor Preston Mobility. Three giant projection screens will allow guests to party the night away while cheering on the nation’s top athletes. In true Edible Canada fashion, the theme will be quintessential Canadian.

Savoury Chef will host multiple food stations showcasing classic Canadian fare such as bison chili, Alberta beef brisket, and maple flapjacks to name a few — perfect late-night snacks to go along with the fun. Other comfort food items provided by Edible Canada will include cheesy perogies. Granville Island Brewing will supply the the craft beer and many other local wines and spirits will be flowing over the course of the weekend, including Edible’s famous “Garnish Your Own” Caesar bar.

“It’s going to be one huge party!” says Eric Pateman, Edible Canada Founder and CEO. “We have been planning our second Festival Under the Bridge since the incredible success of last year’s Street Eats & Beats. The Sochi Olympics is the perfect excuse for a bash. We’re inviting the whole city down to cheer on our Olympic hopefuls and relive the party that was 2010!”
