Festival De La Poutine is no joke. It's a huge 3-day long festival that includes not only 11 different "Poutinieres" but also a massive line-up of live music performances from some of the biggest names in the province.
This particular poutine fest is even more authentic because it's not even located in Montreal, the festivities take Place in Drummondville. Which is about an hour drive from Montreal.
But it's worth the short trip. Here is a little taste of what you will experience at Festival De La Poutine. First, here are the restaurants that will be cooking up a poutine storm for you.
You can buy a three-day pass pre-sale for only $28, which will save you some money. Or you can purchase a single ticket for the day for only $23.
As you can see a photo from last year shows a massive turn-out for this festival. It's really one of the most highly anticipated of the summer. A great way to experience the province outside of Montreal, too. Here are all the essential details in one place for you:
Montreal's iconic Greenspot restaurant is selling hot dogs for $0.74 this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri institution says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
