The French-Canadian classic dish was a huge hit at last years’ (2017) inaugural Sudbury Poutine Fest, which drew over 21,000 people over the festival weekend. Organizers have expanded programming efforts for their second annual Poutine Fest, while moving the event to Bell Park at 900 Paris St, Sudbury, Ontario.
This years’ 2018 event features multiple poutine vendors servings a wide variety of poutine options, who will be sourcing most of their ingredients locally. Patrons can also indulge in arts, crafts, ax throwing, a kids zone, face painting, live music, and evening headliner concerts featuring Friday night country headliner Jason Blaine, and Saturday night classic-rock headliners Goddo with special guests The Kings.
Saturday night of Poutine Fest is host to an 80’s themed party that will award the best 80’s outfits, with a number of prizes including an iPad.
Admission to the food and licensed entertainment grounds is only $2 before 8 pm (free for children 12 and under), $5 thereafter for evening headliner concerts. Evening concerts are 19+ after 8 pm.
