Magnus Theatre invites you to celebrate this extra day of the year with Tastes of the North, our annual Dinner + Auction.

In partnership with Lake of the Woods Brewing Company and Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel, this year’s event will feature a dinner menu designed with craft beer in mind.

Warm up your taste buds with flights of beer specially selected to complement a three-course meal that shows off the culinary diversity of this great region. Lake of the Woods and the Executive Chef from the Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel will provide expert commentary to guide your palate through these delicious gourmet creations.

Dinner will start with an appetizer of smoked salmon with honey dill aioli, served with Sultana Gold Blonde Ale breadsticks. The main course is an 8-ounce Frenched pork chop marinated in Channel Marker Citra-Lite, dredged in a five-spice blend, cooked to a golden brown and served with baby bok choy in garlic and Big Lake Pasta, drizzled with a sweet chili sauce. Dessert will be a freshly made blueberry bannock baked in egg and Forgotten Lake Blueberry Ale and finished with vanilla ice cream and maple syrup.

Tastes of the North will see the Magnus stage transformed into a rustic dining hall, exuding an atmosphere of coziness, comfort and conviviality meant to inspire feelings of wellness and contentment in the winter months.

The Magnus lounge will host a silent auction made possible from the generous donations of a variety of products and services from local businesses and supporters. A live auction will follow dinner, so get your paddles up and bid on dozens of awesome items and getaway packages.

Stay tuned for an updated list of our auction items!
