UPCOMING EVENTS

Vancouver Poutine Festival | November 19

WHAT IS POUTINE EXACTLY? Well, Let me tell you!

Poutine is hot gravy and melted cheesecurds on fries. It can come with several toppings like bacon, onions and anything else (more cheese?) It is a very celebrated Canadian speciality that’s rooted moreso in Eastern Canada (Quebec, stand up!)

Anyone want to visit Vancouver? Let me know!

Attention poutine lovers of Vancouver, there is now a festival to honour the wonderful culinary delight.  Francouver.ca is proud to present The Vancouver Poutine Festival on November 19, sponsored by “La Belle Patate”, Quebec Government and The Poutine Festival of Drummondville aka Poutine’s Motherland. The festival features an experimental poutine contest; open to all, family activities, a poutine crawl, open mic for teenagers, francophone concerts & more!

Like the food itself, the festival is meant to celebrate the warm and flavourful Quebecois culture. It’s an all-ages excuse to hang out with some good people, relive some fond memories and indulge in some of the best comfort food this side of the Gatineau. Grab a napkin and a friend and come see what all the fuss is about!
