"The festival is a great reason to visit Prince Edward Island in the fall and discover why the province is known as a food lovers’ paradise," said Tourism Minister Robbie Henderson in a news release.
The 2012 festival was the best attended so far. It saw a change of format that brought a number of celebrity chefs to host the festival. Previous festivals had been hosted by P.E.I.'s own Michael Smith.
Smith will be host of the Prince Edward Island International Shellfish Festival this year, which runs Sep. 13-15.
"Every Signature Event at Fall Flavours will have one or more of these high profile television personalities as guest host, said chef Jeff McCourt, chair of the P.E.I. Culinary Alliance.
The Fall Flavours Festival will be held at venues across Prince Edward Island Sep. 7-30.
