The Fort McMurray Food Festival celebrates the creativity of the local food scene in Fort McMurray, Alberta, which draws inspiration from an international community and local terroir.

Location: Fort McMurray, Alberta

Calling all foodies, dining connoisseurs, and simply anyone who likes to eat, to sample Fort McMurray's growing food scene and the people behind it. 

The whole idea is to showcase what's the exciting things happening in the community after the devastating wildfire of 2016.
