Sudbury Poutine Fest 2019 returns to Bell Park!

Sudbury Poutine Fest 2019

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.
