We’re warming up winter starting February 4, 2023

We love our coffee and treats in Old Strathcona. And we know you do too! Returning Saturday, February 4, our Sweet Treats & Latte Festival will once again highlight amazing cafes, bakeries and bubble tea across the business district. The more you treat yourself, the more chances you’ll have to win weekly and festival prizes. And we’ve even got something for our four-legged friends this year!
