When summer begins to wane and hot August days yield to cool evenings, zucchinis grow and multiply in gardens everywhere. Zucchinis are notably the easiest garden vegetable to grow; they also bear a reputation for growing in over-abundance, to enormous sizes and in weird, wonderful shapes and colours. Zucchini’s prolific nature has led to some creative solutions by gardeners, bakers and cooks, who constantly find new recipes that include the prolific vegetable. Zucchini can be sweet or savoury, baked, deep-fried, grilled, roasted, stewed or preserved; unlike any other vegetable in the world, zucchini could easily be featured in every round of a 3-course dinner! It is with this in mind that we offer Zucchinimania!, a one-day celebration where zucchini is the garden celebrity. Contests seeking the best zucchini bread, biggest zucchini, weirdest shaped zucchini and most colourful zucchini will offer cash prizes to participants. As a secondary theme, we celebrate the bounty of the garden by including a chili-cookoff, corn roast and produce, baking and preserves vendors. Embellishing the day’s fun, we’ll include good live music, face painting and fun displays to entertain the whole family. Zucchinimania! Is produced by and in support of Askennonia Senior Centre, a non-profit organization in Midland, ON and one of North Simcoe’s most valuable resources for people age 55+. One-hundred percent of the profits of Zucchinimania! Will be go towards funding programs, activities and operational costs at Askennonia.
