Kahnawà:ke Tourism Blog
Kahnawà:ke Tourism hosts and attends a variety of events throughout the year, encouraging tourism within Kahnawà:ke.
In 2016, the food festival initiative was created to showcase our traditional foods that coincide with our cycle of ceremonies to visitors and community members alike. The food fests are a fun, respectful and economically beneficial way in which to share our culture, without disrupting the local environment.
Harvest Food Fest
The harvest food fest hosted throughout the month of October promoted tourism to Kahnawà:ke while celebrating harvest items and food. Local businesses throughout the community came together to make the harvest food fest possible. Participating businesses included: Two O’ Seven Steak & Seafood, Tota Ma’s, Rooster Express, Village Variety, Valley Girls Flowers & Gifts, JoJo’s Nursery, and Eileen’s Bakery. The harvest food fest encouraged tourism to the community and promotion of indigenous business.
Kaienthókwen Scavenger Hunt
The hunt begins with the Kaienthókwen Scavenger Hunt. Due to the cancellation of the 2021 Corn Fest the Kaienthókwen Scavenger Hunt had been made possible.
