Please note current Provincial Health Orders require that we dine only with someone from our own household, and within our local community. So, support your neighbourhood restaurants with take out or dine in.

Taste of the Tri-Cities is the event we’ve all been waiting for – a reason to dine out (or take out) and try something new. With the bonus of staying close to home, this foodie event is an excuse to eat, drink and be merry, all while supporting our local restaurants.

Running from Monday, Feb. 15 until Friday, March 19, this event showcases dozens of restaurants throughout Coquitlam, Port Moody and Port Coquitlam, including over 25 in Coquitlam alone. Participating restaurants, pubs, cafés and craft breweries are offering food specials that won’t be seen on the regular menu.

Did we mention this is Taste of the Tri-Cities’ first year in operation? Visit their website to view the offers, including everything from discounts on takeout orders to set menus to dine-in experiences.
