What is a poutine you ask? For those people who have never had a Poutine, the dish is thought to have originated in rural Quebec, Canada, made with French fries and cheese curds topped with a light brown gravy-like sauce. This fast-food dish is typically found across Canada and in some places in the northern United States, less often elsewhere and is still considered 'exotic' in such places.

Your Sponsorship is what makes this event possible. We hold this event on the first day of the Acadian Festival, but we are not affiliated with the Festival. It is our way of helping bring people to the area that we serve. If you have sponsored the Acadian Festival or Music in the Park, those are "Acadian Festival Events" and they are not associated with the Chamber...so your support is very much appreciated.
