Q: WAIT. Is poutine that crazy food they eat in Montreal that is french fries and sauce and everything?

A: Yes.

 

Q: Does eating poutine cause you to have a heart attack?

A:  Well, maybe.  If you eat ONLY poutine.  But we are not doctors, so we can't say.

A: Although this is a common misconception, no!  Anyone can eat poutine, from small children to the elderly.

 

Q: If you can't pronounce it can you still eat it?

A:  Yes!  Although we suggest you cram more fries into your mouth, or call it "that delicious gravy-cheese-potato-stuff, you know, whatsitcalled?" so that no one makes fun of you.

 

Q: How do I get there?

A: Chop Shop/ 1st Ward is located right off of the Damen Blue Line stop. You can drive there, or take the bus.  A cab is a excellent plan, too!  If you live nearby, you could even walk.  

 

Q:  Can my restaurant participate in Poutine Fest?

A:  If your restaurant is interested in participating in 2016, please contact us at poutinefest@gmail.com

 

Q:  I have a group who wants to attend together, can we do group sales?

A:  Since the response to the event has been overwhelming, we have a much higher demand than we have tickets for the event. The available tickets will be first-come, first-serve when sales are announced and there are no group sales. We highly recommend you act quickly.

 

Q:  I consider myself a poutine aficionado, how can I be considered to judge Poutine Fest?

A: Unfortunately, we already have a full cast of extremely qualified judges-  born-and-bred Canadians, talented Chefs and local food critics, among others. But everyone at the fest gets to vote for crowd favorite, so really, everyone's a judge!
