I know this always seems a little early, but I’m welcoming the return of fall and hoping that 2023 sees a return for many Manitoba Fall Suppers. Even though I’m no longer writing Dining with Donald, I still love promoting fall suppers.
Please feel free to include, in the comment section, any Manitoba Fall Supper you discover. Also, if you can’t make a Manitoba Fall Supper, please feel free to add free to add your favourite community dinner dish to the comment section.
There are several things I really like about fall suppers. They bring communities together. On some level they serve as social levellers. They help create and sustain traditions. Plus, every once in awhile they are a good excuse to go out and stuff yourself to the gills.
You will notice that I have a generous definiton of what constitutes a fall supper. Although it must include a meal. Just offering snacks doesn’t make the cut.
Covid really took a bite out of fall suppers, and it’s time we bite back. As always, this list will be a mix of typical fall suppers, along with some higher end suppers that serve as fundraisers for many great community organizations around Manitoba. These tend to dominate the early iterations of this post, as they have the resources and need to plan quite far ahead of the event.
