The Mayor’s Souper Sampler is CSC’s annual October fundraising event featuring local soups, entertainment, a kid’s corner and more. The event draws around 500 local residents to Cambridge City Hall each year, eager to try some of the region’s best broths!

Restaurants and caterers compete for two titles: Best Soup, which is judged by a panel including Cambridge Mayor Doug Craig, as well as the People’s Choice Award which attendees vote for using their spare change. All proceeds support programs and services offered by CSC.

When and where is the event?

The event is taking place on Saturday, October 27th, 2018 at Cambridge City Hall, 50 Dickson Street, Cambridge Ontario, from 10:30am until 2:00pm.

New this year, kids are encouraged to wear their Halloween costume to do some early trick-or-treating!

When can I get tickets?

Tickets are $5 per person at the door, and includes two samples. Additional samples can be purchased for $1 each.

All-You-Can-Eat Soup tickets are $20 per person and includes a free reusable water bottle.
