We hope you’re hungry because the year’s cheesiest festival is nearly here! La Poutine Week is back in Calgary and this year’s list has finally been released.

An annual festival organized by Sysco, this “do good, eat great” event challenges pubs, cafes and bars from coast to coast to create outlandish, decadent or original poutine, all in the name of charity.

From brisket and waffle to donair meat and buffalo chicken, foodies will be encouraged to sink their teeth into everything Alberta’s restauranteurs have to offer and you won’t want to miss a curd!
