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.

  • Le Cuisinier Rebel  (guest chef)
  • Le Canadien (winner 2017)
  • Le Gras Dur
  • Resto Belgo
  • Gregs Shack
  • Le Poutine fest truck
  • Camion le voltigeur
  • Shack 79
  • Didon du Quebec
  • Lampron highland grill
  • Le burger shop

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.
