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.
Indulge in #guiltfreepoutine! With 19 local restaurants participating , we guarantee that your taste buds and heart will be satisfied!
$4 from EVERY poutine sold during Poutine Week will go directly to
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saskatoon to create life-changing matches!
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 on Instagram and Facebook of your poutine from a participating restaurant. Tag YXE Poutine Week and use the hashtag #GuiltFreePoutine!

“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 Directorof 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, and we’re hoping that people can share in the fun and help us beat out our sales record of 1580 poutine record from last year.
YXE Poutine Week kicks off again this year with a drool-worthy Kick-off Crawl (Presented by 7shifts) taking place Saturday, Oct. 19 starting at 1 p.m. For $40, you get a starter-sized poutine and a beer at three of the participating restaurants(Cohen’s Beer Republic, Hudson’s Pub, and Congress Beer House).
