Just how much poutine can you stuff in your pie hole?

Test the limits of your gut (and good taste) or sit back and watch the pros do the heavy eating at Smoke’s Poutinerie’s 7th Annual World Poutine Eating Championship.

On Saturday, October 1, 2016, poutine eaters of all weight classes will be convening at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto. Not only does this happen to be the world’s biggest poutine eating contest, but it’s also the second-largest professional eating competition in the world.

This mega-chow down features three individual eating competitions: Amateur, Charity Challenge, and Professional.

Attending the event is free and family-friendly, and the celebration includes free poutine samples, games, and live entertainment, including music from DESTROYER Canada-Tribute to KISS. The band rocks the stage from noon to 1 pm, then the eating contests are on from 1 to 4 pm, followed by the band’s second set from 4 to 5 pm.
