Every year during the first week of February, restaurants all across Canada and the United States make special poutines in honour of La Poutine Week. Poutine lovers across the nation get a chance to enjoy new tasty poutines and vote for their favourite ones. At the end of the festival, participating restaurants will be named the best poutines in the country. 

At Narcity, we're huge fans of poutine so we're definitely excited to try out all of the amazing poutines available across the country this year.
