Dive into a Newfoundland Tradition! Seal Flipper Dinner!


Check out the whole story to learn more:

Here is a slice of Newfoundland and Labrador’s culinary heritage for you! Each year, more than 100 seal flippers find their way to the plates at Wesley United Church, offering a unique taste of the sea that’s as rich in flavour as it is in tradition. This decades-old event isn’t just about food; it celebrates community and local customs. As CBC’s Jessica Singer discovered, it’s “pretty flipping good!”


Whether you love them or hate them, seal flippers are a testament to the region’s culture and the hearty spirit of its people.


Every plate served helps maintain the historic Wesley United Church, thanks to the dedicated volunteers and the communal support that keeps this tradition alive.
