Q: 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.


Q: Do you have to be French to eat poutine?

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: Where is the fest?

A:  The fest will be held February 15 2015, at Haymarket Brewery. 


Q: How much does it cost to get in?

A: VIP tickets (11 a.m. entry to the 11:30-1:30 p.m. session) are $70 each, and include 3 drink tickets, a Buffalo Trace cocktail, 10 poutine tickets and early admission to the fest.

General admission tickets (11:30-1:30 p.m or 2-4 p.m.) are $60 each, which includes 2 drink tickets, a Buffalo Trace cocktail and 10 poutine tickets.

This is a 21+ event.


Q: How do I get there?

A: You can drive there, or take the bus.  A cab is a excellent plan, too!  If you live nearby, you could even walk.  We'll get some maps together for you shortly.


Q:  Can my restaurant participate in Poutine Fest?


A:  If your restaurant is interested in participating in 2015, 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!
