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.

“It seems there’s a market today for smaller, more reasonably priced or free festivals. Several of the large multi-day, costly festivals in North America have either been discontinued this year or have scaled down considerably.” comments Feast Fest partner, Lisa Groves. “We decided to create a festival model that fits nicely into this trend that we can take to multiple cities this year (currently Sudbury, Midland, London, ON). We are experiencing great traction for our ‘first year event’ and have already been approached by other municipalities for next year. I have been involved in a successful event in Barrie, ON that started 46 years ago with 20 vendors. Today that same event has over 2,000 vendors. It takes time to grow an annual sustainable festival. We are in it for the long haul.” Lisa’s family recently sold Burls Creek in Oro, which now hosts Boots & Hearts, Wayhome, The Big Feastival and the Barrie Automotive Flea Market.
