As voted by expert poutine lovers, local French bistro Coquine Restaurant was crowned the Poutine King of Toronto for their exquisite Duck Confit Poutine. Congratulations go out to Chef Sandro Bustamante and Owner Rob Prete!
Coquine's Duck Confit Poutine featured Yukon Gold frites topped with demi-glace, smoked provolone, brie, and Quebec duck confit cured for two days and slow-cooked for 5 hours until tender. *drools*
Our favourite national dish, the Poutine, took centre stage in Toronto's very FIRST Poutine Fest.
Check out the video teaser to get a glimpse of the action.
Stay tuned for Poutine Fest 2014!

Tickets cost $35 + HST per person and can only be purchased online in advance. Tickets will not be sold at the door. There is a limit of 6 tickets per transaction. Once tickets are sold out (and believe me, they will be fast), that's it! Tickets are non-refundable.
Each ticket allows you access to all-you-can-eat poutine from participating vendors, while quantities last. You will also receive 3 drink tickets for 4oz sample-sized craft beers, courtesy of Beer Academy. After you try all the different types of poutine, don't forget to vote for your favourite poutine!
All attendees must be 19+ years of age to attend Toronto Poutine Fest, as this event is being held at Beer Academy (closest intersection is Yonge & Richmond). You must present valid photo ID at the door in order to enter the event.
Unfortunately, the 3 drink tickets included in your admission price can only be redeemed for 4oz sample-sized craft beers. For non-alcoholic beverages (e.g. juices, pop drinks) and additional beer, wine, spirits can be purchased on-site at Beer Academy. Water is provided for free to all attendees.
Unfortunately, we do not offer any vegetarian options this year. Sorry! :(
We cannot guarantee that the food ingredients that you are allergic to (or traces of them) will not be found on site. For example, even though none of the vendors use peanut oil or peanuts, we cannot guarantee that peanuts or traces of peanuts will not be found on premises. If you are allergic to certain foods, you should take necessary precautions on your end and neither Joylister nor Beer Academy will be responsible for any harm done to you due to allergic reactions from foods present at this event.
Toronto Poutine Fest is on Thursday, August 22nd, 2013 from 5pm to 10pm. We suggest you arrive as early as possible, as there may be a bit of a wait to get inside Beer Academy during peak hours. The festivities will end at 10pm sharp. Please allocate approximately 1.5 to 2 hours for this event, as there will be lineups for the poutines. Our poutine craftsmen will try their best to churn out as many poutines as they humanly can!
