Slow Food Cycle Sunday

A Celebration of Food, Farmers, and Joys of Biking

Slow Food Cycle Sunday presented by Pemberton Valley Supermarket is an opportunity to connect — town folk and city folk, consumers with their food, people with the land. The future of food is local!


Slow Food Cycle Sunday is a 40 kilometer / 25 mile cycle up and down Pemberton Meadows Road. Choose your own pace and do as much or as little of the route as you like.


Visit Pemberton farms and purchase local produce, crafts and much more along the way.


Presenting the Slow Food Cycle Sunday Video Series – a series of docu-videos highlight the importance of farming and agri-tourism in Pemberton, while showcasing Pemberton’s beautiful farming community.


The storylines for each video are unique to each farm and allow the viewer to get to know the farmers while offering a glimpse of the behind the scenes action.


A new video, featuring a new farm, will be released each week for the month of August 2021.

CANCELLED: 2021 Slow Food Cycle - Sunday, August 15

Due to the current Public Health Order and the anticipated restrictions on gatherings Tourism Pemberton, organizers of the annual Slow Food Cycle Sunday, have decided to cancel the 2021 event that was scheduled to take place on Sunday, August 15.


The Slow Food Cycle Sundays welcomes over 3200 visitors to Pemberton to participate in the 1-day event. Due to the sheer size of the event as well as the additional resources and support required to guarantee the safety and health of all the participants, farmers, volunteers and staff, the decision was made to not host the event in 2021.


We hope to return in 2022!
