Food Day Canada 2017 takes place on Saturday, August 5th and is a chance for all Canadians to join hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers; our chefs and researchers… and, above all, our home cooks.
Get Involved! You can head to one of our enthusiastic Food Day Canada restaurants to enjoy an unequalled repast or you can plan your own party! Absolutely Anywhere! Paddle to a distant shore to light a campfire…barbecue some fish …sweep off the deck for a neighbourhood supper….dig a roasting pit….build an oven … fire up the grill…and use only Canadian ingredients to create a feast or a simple dinner that honours our extraordinary culinary history and points the way to the future, together.
And never, ever be afraid to haul out your soapbox to tell retailers to provide more Canadian ingredients, with hopefully less packaging, so you can eat this way all year round!
Food Day Canada is the time and place for Canadians to share their food and their stories with each other while leading other nations in cultural diversity, food ethics, magnificent flavours … and fun! We know how to throw a great party, so LET’S SHOW THE WORLD!

About Food Day Canada
It began in 2003 as The World’s Longest Barbeque, a massive, Canada-wide response to the sanction of Canadian beef exports by our largest trading partner and the dramatic hardship it imposed on our agricultural community. The WLBBQ was a huge success and has evolved into Food Day Canada®, an annual mid-summer celebration, always held on the Saturday of the August long weekend, when we share Canada’s rich culinary heritage, our delicious northern bounty and the best managed food system on the planet.
