Sudbury Poutine Fest 2019 returns to Bell Park!

One of Sudbury Ontario’s biggest annual events is returning to Bell Park, August 23-25 2019. Organizers of the 3rd annual Sudbury Poutine Fest are expecting over 25,000 attendees across the three-day festival.

Festival organizers say that two-years of highly successful attendance has lead to a much greater interest among poutine vendors and brand partners from all across Ontario, seeking to participate in the growing festival. Organizers have confirmed that vendor space is close to sold-out for 2019.

This years’ festival will offer attendees more than just poutine, with the inclusion of arts, crafts, live music, a kids-zone, beverage sampling and evening beer gardens for patrons 19+ after 8pm (Friday & Saturday). Poutine Fest offers daily admission for only $3, or $5 per pair of patrons, free for children 12 and under. Evening headliner concerts will soon be announced..

The 2019 festival is being scaled to encompass multiple areas of Bell Park including Grace Hartman Amphitheatre. A slight change to the festival layout has been proposed, aimed to accommodate a growing number of vendors. Vendor and brand partner contact information is available on the festival website at
