WIN free passes to the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games

The Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games are this weekend!  We kick off with the parade tomorrow night (Thursday, August 6) at 7:30pm in beautiful, historic and Scottish downtown Fergus followed by terrific live music throughout our great pubs.

After achieving the Guinness World Record for simultaneous caber toss last year, Inverness went and broke our record (unfairly in my opinion…).  Nevertheless – we are going to take it back on Saturday at 11:30am.  The Discovery Channel will be there to film it and so can you!  As a proud sponsor of this historic event we have 2 Saturday day passes to give away ($50 value!).  All you need to do is come on in and fill out a ballot.

Fraberts is also proud to sponsor the shuttle bus which can take you to and from the Games from various locations in downtown Fergus and Elora.  Visit for everything else you need to know!

Local Produce Report

Van Tols local sweet corn is now in!  Also – peaches from Niagara, Ontario blueberries, strawberries, plums and other yummy fruit.  Local veggies include new carrots, beans, fresh peas, lettuce and gorgeous basil.  Local produce is our claim to fame!

Whole Hog BBQ

Chefs Jay and Derek will be competing again in The Whole Hog BBQ on Sunday, September 13 – you can now get your tickets at Fraberts.  Last year’s inaugural event was a smashing success and a whole lot of fun.  Come out and support the Food School and the Wellington Centre for Sustainable Agriculture!
