The annual Sturgeon County Bounty is about more than food and crafts.
 
This year, ten food vendors will be showcasing a taste of their menus with ingredients from local producers.
 
"It started a few years ago as an economic development initiative to connect more of our producers with consumers and also with people in the food industry with chefs and restaurants," explained Leanne McBean, economic development coordinator with Sturgeon County.
 
The event format switched three years ago to a larger event in Cardiff Park.
 
"Right now, we're building awareness as to what there is out here that's fresh and local, building those relationships is benefiting our producers by getting to know more people in the food industry."
 
In 2012, the event attracted over 2,000 people.
 
Among local delicacies is the Morinville Farmer's Market, featuring local crafts and specialty items. New this year is live entertainment, courtesy Morinville's Justin Hogg and Ain't No Rodeo.
 
This year, Sturgeon County Bounty is at Cardiff Park on August 11, from 4:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
