Welcome to Warkworth’s Long Lunch
It’s August in Warkworth, Ontario. It’s time for celebration. This community of eight hundred, which is home to artisans, musicians, potters and farmers, is set in a valley of rich farmland in the beautiful Northumberland Hills. The street is blocked off and tables are stretched out to accommodate the hundreds who will gather so that the community can celebrate and enjoy a new experience for this 14th annual Warkworth Long Lunch, Sunday August 20th from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.
In true Warkworth fashion we are changing it up for this year’s Long Lunch.
With the popularity of Food Truck events the Warkworth Business Association Long Lunch event Chair, Perry Melzack has transformed a vision into reality and is bringing one to our village!
Fabulous food trucks combined with great entertainment by the Long Lunch Rhythm Band, the return of the popular tiny vintage trailers, a beer garden, the signature Long Lunch feature of tables lined down the Main Street and all the friendly folks will make it another day to remember.
You won’t need tickets just a $2 entrance fee and then you purchase your food from your vendor of choice.
Bestia , Toronto’s first truck with an on-board, wood burning oven. The all-black roaming Italian kitchen is beast when it comes to serving up personal sized, Naples-style pizzas along with rustic roasted meat sandwiches, salads and sweet specialties.
Or maybe ….
Tdots Naansense , a Toronto based food truck created by the catering company H&H sachet. They are diversifying flavour and brining Indian cuisine to the streets. Indulge in unique dishes like slowed cooked butter chicken, chilli lime crab cakes and fried butter chicken mac and cheese.
And then there is …..
The Great Canadian Food Truck , a Markham based truck specializing in homestyle Canadian comfort foods. Menu items include peameal bacon grilled cheese sandwiches, poutine, Atlantic cod tacos and crispy mashed potato and cheese balls smothered in gravy which they call Mooseballs.
And how about ….
Gourmet Gringos, Mexican Grill, features delicious and fresh choices of your Mexican favorites like burritos, tacos and more.
And then a special beer ….
We will also be hosting the very first Craft Brewery Beer garden featuring the amazing brews of Wild Card Brewery of Trenton. Some of the awesome beers include: The Flop – blonde ale; Ride the Brake – IPA; Saved by the Dunk – German red ale; Cali Love – West Coast Blonde; Notoriously Juicy – New England Pale Ale.
Don’t miss it!

Early in the day many Warkworth volunteers will be out blocking off the street, setting up the tables and chairs, decorating and all manner of preparations. The food trucks and tiny vintage trailers will be setting up and the musicians will be tuning their instruments. Shop keepers will be preparing their stores to be ready for our visitors. The air will be filled with anticipation as the 14th Annual Long Lunch draws near.
The Warkworth Long Lunch is a midsummer’s party to share each other’s company across the table. It’s clear and simple. The Long Lunch derives its name from the vision of its founders. Tables set end to end down the middle of one of the nicest main streets in small town Ontario. We welcome you to join us for this celebration.
