After running around all day meeting with our some of our wedding vendors, we ended the night with a highly anticipated event – World of Poutine – Ottawa PoutineFest!
Michael and I have never had the pleasure in participating in a poutine event, and living in Australia for the last 5 years has certainly deprived us!
Ottawa PoutineFest took place over May 5-8, 2016 and included things like:
- An incredible selection of poutine fused with flavours from around the world – including lobster, Donair, and Thai!
- Making the world’s largest poutine while fundraising for charity
- Craft Beer Garden from Broadhead Brewery
- Live entertainment
- Food demos
- Old fashioned lemonade, churros, blooming onions, and more!
Located by Ottawa City Hall, we were joined by my siblings and our cousins. More people meant more variety, which is perfect because we ate… so much. It was worth it!
My sister Jenni and cousin Janet – so nice all being in town together!
Tons of poutine trucks to choose from!
What happens when you attend a poutine festival with a bunch of people… you get to try so many things!
And when even more people join!
The Upper Deck had one of our favourite poutines – the Classic Halifax Donair!
What goes perfect as dessert to poutine? Beavertails of course! Another iconic Canadian food! That meant a short walk from City Hall to the Byward Market. View of downtown Ottawa at dusk – gorgeous!
Mmm, what is better than ending your meal with a soft, chewy, fluffy pastry dipped in cinnamon sugar and sprinkled with lemon juice?! Kilaloe Sunrise is my favourite beavertail option on the menu!
So much cholesterol was consumed this night 🙂 So happy! Thanks everyone for hanging out with us!
If you have the chance, don’t miss out! This year’s Ottawa PoutineFest is May 4-7, 2017!
