Food Day Canada was founded in 2003 by Anita Stewart as The World’s Longest BBQ in response to the sanction of Canada’s beef exports by our largest trading partner and the dramatic hardship it imposed on our agricultural community. The BBQ was a huge success and has evolved into Food Day, an annual mid-summer celebration when we share Canada’s rich culinary heritage, our delicious northern bounty and the best managed food system on the planet.
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!
Over 130 of the Top Culinary Destinations in Canada joined Food Day Canada in 2010, making Food Day Canada 2010 the most significant single culinary celebration in Canada’s history! That list grew in 2011 to nearly 300 registered establishments. Below you’ll find all the archives and a host of amazing parties from coast to coast to coast.
