La Poutine Week returns to Calgary from February 1 to 7

Jan 24 2020, 6:49 pm

La Poutine Week kicks off all across Canada in February 2020 for the eighth time, and we can taste the squeaky cheese-curd goodness already.

In the past, the annual week-long celebration of fries, curds, and gravy has seen hundreds of participating restaurants dish out original takes on the iconic Quebecois dish.

The fest takes place during the first week of February. The dining public can eat and vote on their favourites before a winner is announced at the end of the week.

As always, February 1 will mark the kick-off of the self-proclaimed “biggest poutine festival in the world,” and it will run until February 7.

Here are all the things you can eat during La Poutine Week in Calgary:
