About Eat to the Beat

High-calibre cuisine and the finest libations take centre stage at Eat to the Beat.

Entering it’s 24th year, Eat to the Beat is a mecca for urban foodies who come to experience the best Ontario’s culinary scene has to offer. It is the only event in Canada that exclusively features the talent of 60 female chefs – women supporting women through the challenges that come with a breast cancer diagnosis.

Stroll through Roy Thomson Hall and enjoy bite-sized portions of specially crafted savoury and sweet dishes, along with wine, beer, spirits, and a selection of non-alcoholic libations from the finest beverage purveyors.

Back once again are our favourite Corset Ladies, a group of supporters and survivors who design and wear beautiful, food-themed corsets.  The Ladies will be circulating through the event, interacting with guests and selling raffle tickets for a chance to win one of three amazing prizes!

And don’t forget to purchase your mystery bag - remember those childhood surprise bags? You’re all grown up now, and so are the prizes in the mystery bags!


Eat to the Beat was founded as a fundraising event for Willow Breast & Hereditary Cancer Support (Willow) by Lisa and Abigail Slater, sisters and business women who were inspired by the courage and strength of breast cancer survivors and the many people whose lives they knew had been affected by the disease.

Funds raised at Eat to the Beat will help the Canadian Cancer Society continue to provide breast cancer information, support services, and programs. To learn more, please visit cancer.ca.

We look forward to seeing you at Eat to the Beat 2019! October 22, 2019.
