To accommodate COVID-19 health measures, you don't even need to get out of your car to experience it. Like in 2020, you can either drive through or walk through the festival but keep in mind that no tables or chairs will be available. 

The menu includes jerk chicken poutine, General Tao poutine, fish & chips poutine and more.

Admission is free but a poutine will cost you between $9.99 and $16.53.
