Poutine Palooza is a new one day event that takes the whole weekend...what? That's right, Poutine Palooza will take place on August 11, 2017 during Party du Maine Street event, hosted by the Acadian Festival. We have also teamed up with restaurants in the area to offer specials on poutines from August 6 to 15, 2017
A list of participating restaurants will come soon.
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.
2017 Best Restaurant Poutine Contest:
Restauraunts that are members in good-standing with the St. John Valley Chamber of Commerce, will be asked to join this contest. Each restaurant may enter up to three poutines into the contest per year. Three awards will be given out for the best poutine and the best poutine will have their business name added to a plaque that they can hang in their restaurant for that year showing everyone that they are the best!
2017 Poutine Eating Contest: 7:30 pm - Big Rick's Burgers & Wings

Participants will begin with a measured portion of traditional poutine (fries, cheese and brown gravy). The person(s) who eats the most poutine (in weight) will win. Top three winners will be presented a cash award (tbd). All participants will receive a t-shirt.
