Spud Trilogy

SPUD TRILOGY PICKING - PEELING - EATING

It promised to be epic and that is exactly what it was. The Spud Trilogy - which included Spud Picking, Spud Peeling, and for the first time - Spud Eating, drew a huge crowd on the Village Green on the Saturday afternoon of the festival.

After the spuds were picked and peeled, it was face down in mashed spuds.

Thank you so much to the Community Bank of Port Fairy and District who have come on board as our major sponsor and partner for the Spud Trilogy. That is such great news and a win-win for all.

Get training and be a part of it for 2023!!!
