Jan 30 2023, 11:26 pm

It might be the shortest month, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some amazing Edmonton food events in February.

This month has some of the city’s favourite seasonal food events, and this week has dinner and movie events, popular markets, and an epic week of poutines. There were many food spots that opened up in 2022 as well, so checking those out should also be on the to-do list.

Here are the best Edmonton food events to check out this week in February.

Chinatown Dining Week

This year, 15 different restaurants are joining in on the festivities, offering menus that are either $10 or $20. Some will be doing dine-in only, others will be strictly take-out specials, and there are a few that will be offering both.

Where: Various locations
When: January 26 to February 5
Price: $10 and $20 specials
