The Grand PoutineFest is celebrating its return to Montreal’s Old Port with lots of new features. In addition to its new traditional formula, letting you create your own poutine from more than twenty combinations (including a vegan version), there are numerous extra activities to shake things up.
Here is what you can expect in this year’s running:
- In an effort to be more green, all orders of poutine will be served on reusable plates for a $2 fee, and 50 cents of that fee will be donated to Operation Enfant Soleil. Additionally, a donation of $1 will also be made to Operation Enfant Soleil with the purchase of any poutine created in collaboration with two public personalities.
- The biggest inflatable obstacle course in Canada will be on site to the amusement of young and old alike. Come move and work off your poutine on a 300 foot long obstacle course.
- Test your knowledge of cheeses at a tasting stand with fresh cheese curds from Quebec cheese makers.Are you still feeling a bit peckish after your poutine? Come grab a sweet treat at the Mademoiselle Croquignoles dessert food truck, THE queen of Funnel Cakes.
You’ll get to discover even more new attractions here, all that’s left is you! Bon appétit!
