Halibut Festival returns to Fresh St. Market with 10,000 lbs of freshly caught Pacific Halibut and in-person community celebrations at its stores.

On May 14 and 15, Halibut Festival returns to Fresh St. Market after a two-year hiatus with 10,000 pounds of fresh Halibut arriving at its stores. Fresh St. Market is inviting the public to enjoy fresh halibut burgers at these festive, in-person family friendly events offering a fish-filled weekend with food demonstrations, Halibut BBQ, children’s activities and more. 

“At Fresh St. Market, we are so excited to be able to host events again at our stores with the goal of getting people excited and passionate about using fresh local quality ingredients and in this case, right from our beautiful British Columbia shores,” explains Mark McCurdy, V.P. Retail Operations & Brand Strategy. “Our past Halibut Festivals have been such a success with community participation, we couldn’t be more thrilled to get this spirit going again and our fish-filled events back in action. With fresh-caught Pacific Ocean Halibut and a boatful of fun activities, we are really looking forward to welcoming everyone to these events.”

During the Halibut Festival, customers have the opportunity to learn about seafood sustainability and purchase B.C.’s fresh cut halibut during the one-day halibut sale.
