Poutine lovers across Quebec will have the opportunity to gather for the eighth edition of the Grand PoutineFest, an unmissable gourmet event that will take place throughout the summer in 19 cities across the province. The Grand PoutineFest will kick off at Place Vertu, from April 28 to May 1, near Meuble RD.

LaSalle - The Grand poutineFest

An appealing opportunity to support Opération Enfant Soleil

FGM Productions, owner of the Grands Poutinefest, will donate a portion of the event’s earnings to Opération Enfant Soleil. “Our goal is to raise $125,000 for the cause. Since we travel across the province during the Grand PoutineFest, it was important for us to leave a positive mark on a provincial scale,” explains Maude Couillard, General Manager of the Grand FoodFest. Being associated with Opération Enfant Soleil allows us to give back to many hospitals across Quebec.”

The Grand PoutineFest goes green

Always looking to innovate and have a positive impact, the Grand PoutineFest is taking action to become a 100% zero waste event in the near future. This year, all poutines will be served in reusable, dishwasher-safe dishes. It will be mandatory to purchase the reusable dish with every poutine purchase for only $2. For each purchase of the dish, 50 cents will be donated to Opération Enfant Soleil. In addition, everything on the site will be recyclable, reusable, or compostable.

Numerous activities and more than twenty original poutines

Visitors will have free access to the event site, where more than six street food trucks will be offering some twenty different combinations of fries, sauce and fresh cheese. We’re talking about braised beef poutine, vegan poutine, general tao poutine, chicken popcorn poutine, keto poutine and more! This year, you’ll have the chance to move around in the biggest inflatable course in Canada; a course of over 300 feet! The perfect activity to get you through the day before enjoying Mademoiselle Croquignoles’ Funnel Cake. Many other new activities await you on site: cheese curd tasting booth, cooking demonstrations, Popcorn Lolo, beer-poutine pairings, photo booth and more. All the details of the event can be found on Le Grand PoutineFest Place Vertu page.
