How’s this for a concept: Culinary Camping.

Chef’s, Musicians, Camping, Fishing Derby, and Onsite Farmers’ Market. Now that’s a concept, and a killer weekend!

Culinary Camping is the concept that Michelle Fournier has created. Michelle created Centrepiece Marketing 3 years ago. She also presents a music series in Port Stanley at the Festival Theatre, mediates between clients and talent agencies, and works for an agency as the Ontario representative.

This July 22nd – 24th 2011 at Springwater Conservation Area come see:

  • Cooking demos featuring both Celebrity chefs and award winning musicians
  • Market on-site, so all the ingredients can be purchased fresh and local during the weekend
  • Gourmet competitions
  • Glamped out site includes pedicures, manicures, and product demos
  • Charity breakfast with proceeds going to the food bank

Camping is such a great Canadian way to spend the weekends, now picture this music line-up. Juno Award Winners Barney Bentall, Stephen Fearing, and Tom Wilson from Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Emm Gryner, Lynn Miles, and Joe Fournier. Celebrity/Musician and in-house CTV Chef Michael P Clive will be there to emcee and to coach the performers with their culinary skills and then join them on stage to offer his bass playing abilities.

Taking the outdoors to another level with this concept of camping related activities, great Canadian roots artists, and gourmet cuisine creates a new kind of festival experience for tourists. Other activities include hiking, kayaking/canoeing, food tasting, and getting up close with the musicians and the chefs.

I’ll leave you with this quote from Michelle,

“If i could have my dream getaway, it would feature camping, music, food and fun! I support our local farmers and Canadian Talent, and love the idea of having a combination festival. The campsite is a non for profit organization and they are please we chose their location. We are also very pleased to offer a charity fund raising breakfast that will benefit our local food bank.”

Tickets are available on line at TicketScene. You can learn more about this festival at
