The Massive Poutine Festival One Hour Away From Montreal You Gotta Attend

I honestly believe that poutine is the great uniter. Not only is it a dish well-loved around the whole world at this point, but it's the quintessential Quebec dish... And although other places might try, we all know that no one can come close to making a poutine quite like Quebec can.

Which is why, whenever there are festivals in celebration of this beautiful dish, it's an awesome thing.

Luckily, there's a poutine festival coming up later this month. On August 25 - 27, Drummondville will be hosting the Festival De La Poutine at Centre Marcel Dionne (Rue Cockburn, Drummondville, QC J2C 4L7), roughly an hour away from Montreal.

Not only will this celebration feature lots and lots of poutine (yasss) from many different food trucks (including Das Food Truck and L'Assomoir), but there will also be live concerts throughout the event, showcasing artists such as Les Cowboys frignant and 2 Frères.

Drummondville — yes, Drummondville — is, perhaps, the unlikely heart of holiday cheer in Quebec. That's where you'll find the Village d'Antan, a living museum of 19th and 20th-century life, which transforms into a 25,000-light Christmas display every year.

Visitors are free to explore the festive streetscapes and enjoy some treats along the way from the old-timey general store and donut shop. A promo video shows street performers and roadside activities, too.

In what can only be described as the ultimate fine dining experience, Tampa Bay Lightning player and Montrealer Mathieu Joseph brought the Stanley Cup to Montréal-Nord this weekend and ate a giant poutine out of it.

Hockey's holy chalice has had many things in it from beer to a baptized baby but never poutine — at least as far as we can tell!

It's Wednesday afternoon, I've already had a few drinks, and I'm craving rotisserie chicken.
