    We have a new version of the map as of August, 2014, and some time in the past few years the URL of the page leading to it changed to http://vcbf.ca/neighbourhood-maps. The functions are the same. It's just faster and we hope it's a bit easier to understand.

    We also have stopped picking favourites for each year. Now that we have around 300 favourite locations, there didn't seem to be a need to choose specific ones each year. The term is now used to refer to any location that is a good photo op. Locations that were included to be fair to each neighbourhood, or to make sure each cultivar was represented, have been dropped from the favourites list if they were unexciting.

    If you think a great location should be indicated as a favourite and it is not, let me know or write to the festival at info@vcbf.ca. If there is not a good photo of it in the VCBF Neighbourhood Blogs, please post one in the appropriate neighbourhood thread.
