Canada is Food
Food Day is a national celebration of restaurateurs, suppliers, growers, farmers and citizens. Join us on August 3, 2013 for the 11th annual coast-to-coast-to-coast event, heralding our regional diversity, culinary creativity and world-renowned reputation for throwing an amazing party!
Food Day was founded in 2003 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 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!
