DTK Travellers Tour

Hey, downtown community, it's Breanna, Marketing Manager for the Downtown Kitchener BIA! I am so excited to share a new and extraordinary culinary journey with you.



The annual DTK Travelers Tour has begun, and we are inviting you, the locals, and visitors alike, to indulge in a gastronomic self-guided adventure from February 19 to March 17. We can’t wait to celebrate the rich tapestry of flavours that define our community.

Embracing Culinary Diversity

At the heart of the DTK Travelers Tour lies a celebration of diversity. Each week, participating restaurants transport diners to different corners of the world, offering authentic dishes and experiences that tantalize the taste buds and ignite the senses.
