A Taste of Oakville 2016 - Participation Forms/Deadlines

Dear BIA Restaurateurs,

Reminder about December 15th deadline to let the BIA know if you are participating this year and send your logo if you haven'
We invite your restaurant to participate in A Taste of Oakville from January 26, 2016 - February 11, 2016. For the second year restaurants from across Oakville have combined for A Taste of Oakville. Oakville restaurants located in the Bronte Village BIA and Downtown Oakville are invited to create prix-fixe menus for patrons to sample some of the finest three and four course meals available in the GTA during this three week period.  The BIAs will be running an extensive marketing campaign valued at over $20,000 to support this event. 
 A Taste of Oakville participating restaurants will receive the following:
  • Logo recognition on A Taste of Oakville advertising Participating restaurants prominently displayed on website with links to each restaurants’ prix-fixed menu
  • Promotional Material
New this year, instead of requiring a participation fee from each participating restaurant we will instead require each participating restaurant to provide four (4) $25 gift certificates. This is the same monetary amount that was collected in previous years. The gift certificates will be used as prizes for a contest appearing on CHCH TV to promote A Taste of Oakville.  The contest will be promoted both on air by CHCH TV hosts as well as on their website.  A similar contest ran last year with much success.  Further, by providing your participation fee in the form of gift certificates, it guarantees foot traffic in your business as a result of your investment, in addition to the added promotion you will receive via CHCH. 
Restaurants and cafés interested in participating in A Taste of Oakville are asked to:
  • click here to fill out the participation form and email to
  • submit their participation fee of four $25 gift certificates
  • send high resolution version of your restaurants logo to your local BIA by December 15, 2015 at the latest
  • submit your prix-fixed menu to the BIA by January 4, 2016
