From April 19 to 26, 21 restaurants across Calgary will be participating in the city’s first Poutine Week.
When tickets to the fourth annual Poutine Crawl sold out in 10 seconds, founder Karen Richards created Calgary Poutine Week so all Calgarians would have a chance to try some (or all!) of the city’s best poutines.
Calgary Poutine Week has also teamed up with MealShare, a new non-profit aimed at stopping the spread of hunger. For every poutine sold, MealShare will provide a meal for someone in need, so grab your friends and family and start your own poutine crawl!
