The 2015 Cathedral Village Arts Festival runs May 18-23. It will be the 24th annual, and the theme this year is From the HeART. Before that happens, though, we’ve still got a few months of winter to slog through along with what’s typically a sketchy spring.

To help set the mood for May, plus also raise funds for the 2015 CVAF, the organizing committee is holding this fundraiser on Saturday Jan. 31. As the title implies, the event will showcase neighbourhood restaurants along with other food and drink-related businesses in the Cathedral area.

Taste of Cathedral will be held at the Italian Club. Start time is 6 p.m., and admission isĀ $20, with taste tickets $1 each. For more information, visit the CVAF website.
