What is the Tri-Local Collective?

Tri-Local is a collective effort to support local businesses in the Tri-Cities and was initially established during the COVID-19 pandemic, in an effort to help curb the economic impact felt by local businesses.

In February of 2021, the Tri-Local Collective launched our first-ever Taste of the Tri-Cities campaign to help bolster one of the pandemic’s hardest-hit sectors — the food and beverage industry.

Meet Our Tri-Local Partners

Together, the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, Austin Heights Business Improvement Association, Downtown Port Coquitlam Business Improvement Association, Port Moody & Co., Shop Local Port Moody, and Tri-City News are working collectively with the cities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody, to educate and motivate our community to support Tri-Cities.

Taste of the Tri-Cities

Taste of the Tri-Cities was initially conceptualized to support one of the hardest-hit industries of the ongoing pandemic, by encouraging the community to safely come together in support of Tri-Cities restaurants.

As an event that brings together and shines a spotlight on our local bars, cafés, craft breweries, and restaurants, Taste of the Tri-Cities encourages members of our Tri-Cities community to come together in support of local restaurants.

Our inaugural Taste of the Tri-Cities festival took place February 15 – March 19, 2021, and we ate, drank, and enjoyed exceptional dine-in and take-out specials, all in support of local restaurants within the Tri-Cities! During this time, we promoted our vibrant food and beverage industry to over 200,000 members of our Tri-Cities community.

Providing culinary enthusiasts with the opportunity to try and taste some of the best flavours in the Tri-Cities, Taste of the Tri-Cities is all about celebrating the different culinary talents and experiences that the cities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody have to offer.
