SKOOKUM's long-table dinner series kicks off with a celebration of the sea in Stanley Park

September 8, 2018

As Black Pistol Fire played on the nearby Forest stage, dozens of festival-goers dined underneath strings of lights and hanging driftwood sculptures at the inaugural SKOOKUM's long-table dinner last night (September 7).


Getting to the covered dining area gave diners the chance to take in everything happening throughout the Stanley Park grounds: people slam-dunking on a basketball court, folks of all ages with face paint and floral crowns, stilt walkers and cobalt-blue dragons cruising by, silk performers... 


Ocean Wise ambassador Ned Bell and Edible Canada executive chef Tobias Grignon joined forces for a family-style meal with chewy, crispy octopus chips, salmon with sun-warmed blackberries, smoked albacore-tuna tacos, fresh oysters, and more. 


Ocean Wise's involvement in the festival is significant: SKOOKUM has partnered with Ocean Wise Life. That means initiatives such as responsibly sourced products and aggressive recycling and waste-diversion practices, all in an effort to protect our seas. 


SKOOKUM continues all weekend. Check out a few photos from the kickoff evening.
