There's a butter tart festival near Toronto next week

Butter tart lovers are in luck this summer because there's another festival coming up that's dedicated to this ooey, gooey treat. Like the late spring Ontario Best Butter Tart Festival, this one's a bit of a hike, but it'll probably be worth it once you down a few of these distinctly Canadian pastries.

The Butter Tart Festival takes place at the Bradford Farmer's Market is happening on Saturday, September 10 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. This festival is relatively small, but last year, vendors doled out 4,000 tarts in just a few hours.

If you're making the drive up, it'll take you about an hour. And you might as well make a day of it and head to the beach on the shores of Lake Simcoe.
