Sudbury Poutine Fest returned to the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre this weekend, with eleven premium vendors for guests to enjoy.
This year's wild and wonderful menu included lobster mac 'n' cheese, fish and chips, sweet sriracha pork, taco, Montreal smoked meat and many more options to suit a variety of taste buds and dietary restrictions.
Beyond variations of cheese and gravy covered delight, the event featured live music, exhibitors and an expanded children's zone equipped with a climbing wall and giant inflatables.
This year's squeaky cheese was provided by the event's title sponsor, Thornloe Cheese, who make their cheese, butter, cream and ice cream using fresh Northern Ontario milk.
In addition to supplying all vendors with the cheese needed for their festival creations, Thornloe Cheese offered a selection of flavoured cheese curds at their booth and in the poutine available at pop-up shop Northern Curds, operated by Kelsy Cutinello, Poutine Fest co-owner and organizer.
We hope to get bigger and better every year, said Sierra Moro, Poutine Fest events manager. Moro said this will mean new vendors and new flavours each year, aside from the return of Sudbury favourites.
