About

September 18 – 26, 2021

YXE Poutine Week is 9 days of delicious food, fun, and competition between local restaurants in Saskatoon. Each restaurant creates a signature poutine dish inspired by their roots that they will sell over the course of the week. With 21 local restaurants participating, we guarantee that your taste buds and heart will be satisfied!

Support Your Community #PoutineChoice

$4 from EVERY poutine sold during YXE Poutine Week will go directly to
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saskatoon to help create life-changing mentoring relationships!

What’s a LITTLE competition?

The restaurant who sells the most poutines will be crowned the “Gravy Bowl Champion.”

The restaurant voted the most delicious by restaurant goers will win the “Poutine Choice Award”.

To vote for the “Poutine Choice Award” post a photo/video on social media using Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and/or TikTok of your poutine from a participating restaurant. Tag YXE Poutine Week and use the hashtag #PoutineChoice!

“What better way to beat the chilly weather than to get together with some friends and dig into a treat that supports mentorships and community connections right here in Saskatoon,” said Kim Megyesi, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saskatoon. “We’re so proud and thankful for the great restaurants who cooked up something special in support of our cause.

Once the week wraps up, the restaurant that sells the most poutine will be crowned the “Gravy Bowl Champion.” The restaurant that’s voted the most delicious by restaurant-goers wins the “Poutine Choice Award” for favourite poutine. 2020 winners include Prairie Sun Brewery (Gravy Bowl Champion) and Prairie Sun Brewery (Poutine Choice Award).

It wouldn’t be a proper foodie event without delicious photos! We want photo proof of your commitment to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Share photos to #PoutineChoice, and follow the action at @YXE.PoutineWeek (Instagram) and @YXEPoutine (Facebook)
