Montreal kicks off 2024 by indulging in one of the sauciest food festivals around. For seven gluttonous days starting February 1st until the 7th, Montreal celebrates the 12th edition of  the Poutine Week!

What is La Poutine Week?

For its 12th edition, La Poutine Week guarantees poutine offerings that will satiate the most discriminating palates. For one week, restaurants in the greater Montreal area will put their signature spin on Québec’s unofficial-official dish in the name of friendly competition. This year, diners can collect “YUM points” and redeem them for poutines through the week-long event and qualify for DoorDash gift cards ranging from $100-$500 as well.

It’s not only Montreal that’s getting in on the squeaky cheesy action. Thousands of restaurants right across Canada are celebrating La Poutine Week to make this event a truly Canadian festival.  Participating cities include: Banff, Calgary, Charlottetown, Churchill, Edmonton, Fredericton, Gatineau, Halifax, Kelowna, Moncton, Montreal, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Prince Albert, Quebec City, Regina, Saint John, Saskatoon, St. John’s, Surrey, Sydney, Thunder Bay, Toronto, Vancouver, and Winnipeg!

As co-founder Naeem Adam explains “As we enter our 12th year, we're grateful for the support of our community, the dedication of our restaurant partners, and the enthusiasm of our participants. Together, we've turned La Poutine Week into a cultural celebration that brings joy to people's lives. Here's to another year of delicious poutine, unforgettable moments, and the incredible journey that is La Poutine Week.”
