Poutine Feast is Ontario’s firstever travelling poutine festival that specializes in bringing a twist to the most favourite Canadian dish. They are a team of chip truck owners, travelling poutineries if you will, from all across the province who proactively seek out local food trucks who may want to join in whatever city they travel to with each member bringing their own take on the Canadian classic.

They launched just last year and, not surprisingly, have become really popular really quickly. Hundreds of thousands of people came out to their events across Ontario last year. In fact, at the last stop of the festival in Kingston, many trucks came really close to running out of food and needed to call in reinforcements.
