Celebrating northumberland food, drink, art and culture through collaboration, promotion and education!

what is cultivate?

celebrate NoCo

Started in 2015, Cultivate was a two day festival to celebrate local chefs, restaurateurs, farmers, brewmasters and food artisans. We quickly realized that Northumberland had so much to offer and adjusted to a year long initiative to celebrate Northumberland's food, drink, art and culture. We love this place, and you should too! Whether it's the annual festival in September, a collaboration with local breweries, or down at the Port Hope Farmers Market, bite off a piece of Cultivate and savour the peace of mind that comes from supporting your neighbour.

  • Local food has local economic impact of 3:1 versus food bought out of province. We contibuted over $80k back to the community at our festival in 2014 through local partnerships and procurement strategies
