Celebrity chefs Lynn Crawford and Chuck Hughes join lineup
The Prince Edward Island Shellfish Association and the Prince Edward Island Aquaculture Alliance released the lineup for the 2017 PEI International Shellfish Festival to be held September 14–17 at the Charlottetown Event Grounds. The four day festival will showcase the Island’s shellfish with culinary delights, live cooking demos, and authentic Island experiences.
Food Network Canada's celebrity chef Lynn Crawford will return to host the weekend celebrations with Chuck Hughes joining to host the Feast & Frolic event on September 14. This event’s new format will be to “frolic” and mingle and taste the Island tip to tip while meeting local chefs and fishermen, and trying three award-winning chowders. The evening will include roving food stations, a sit-down main course and live entertainment.
The entertainment lineup includes headliners Big Bad Party Band on September 15 and Signal Hill on September 16.
