Uptown Comfort Food Crawl

January 27, 12-4PM 2024

Come on up to support the Food Bank of Waterloo Region AND indulge in our yummiest comfort foods!

Kicking off along with the City of Waterloo’s annual Winterloo festival, this year’s Uptown Comfort Food Crawl is about “Comfort Foods of Uptown” and will include delicious food items from our Uptown Waterloo restaurants that are sure to provide a little comfort. Locations include Revive Game Bar, Kentucky Bourbon & BBQ, and Bodega Rose, with a variety of comfort foods for you to sample, all in one delicious day!

Tickets are $10 to sample at all three locations and all proceeds go to The Food Bank of Waterloo Region

People’s Choice & Judge’s Choice:

Vote for your favourite dish! Once you’ve voted in People’s Choice, you’ll be entered into a draw to win one of three Uptown Dollars prizes – $25, $50, or $100 PLUS a chance to win a unique charcuterie board from june8woodworking! We’ll also have celebrity judges casting their ballots.

PLEASE NOTE: You may start at any location and proceed through the venues in any order. We do request that you do not go back for seconds of any one dish as quantities are determined in advance.
