July 14, 2017, for immediate release


It’s back! For the third year in a row, the B.C. Butter Tart Festival will be held in Lumby’s Whitevalley Community Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 9th.

The theme for the 2017 Festival is “Oh Canada!”  an homage to our great country and its extraordinary cuisine.

There‘ll be lots of vendors selling scrumptious traditional and non-traditional tarts. This year, area charitable and non-profit organizations are invited to join us – the Festival is a cost-effective fund-raising opportunity.

And – great news – the butter tart contest has been simplified. Entries will be limited to homemade butter tarts and shells.  One bold baker is promising Scapes and Bacon tarts – yum!

Vendor Registration for the Market is now open. Forms are available online at www.lumbymarket.com, by e-mail at lumbypublicmarket@gmail.com,



I can't wait for The Buttertart festival Sept 9th
