The Chef's Challenge is the culmination of six events across Ontario that served as qualifiers for the final challenge. The Royal will host the semi-final and final rounds. On Sunday, November 6, The Royal will host internationally acclaimed chefs from Ireland, New York City and Toronto for the Royal International Invitational Chef Challenge. Finally, support the next generation of top-chefs by going to the second annual The Royal High School Chef Competition.  More food and lifestyle event info can be found here.

Excellence in Horsemanship: What visit to The Royal is complete without taking in North America's number one indoor equestrian event? From Olympic Gold medalists Nick Skelton and Big Star of Great Britain and Michael Jung of Germany, competing in Show Jumping and Indoor Eventing respectively to the enchanting Sylvia Zerbini and her Arabian Horses, the Royal Horse Show is spectacular sport and entertainment.
