World Poutine Eating Championship returns to Toronto

Poutine is an indulgent dish that tastes best after 2 a.m. But if you want to watch groups of competitive eaters down pounds of fries, gravy and cheese curds, you should probably head to Yonge-Dundas Square on Saturday, October 1.

Smoke's Poutinerie's World Poutine Eating Championship is returning to the public square in downtown Toronto for the seventh time.

This annual gross-out event is the perfect way to kick off your Halloween month - what's scarier than watching people stuff their faces with piles and piles of soggy fries and brown sauce?

The competition is free to attend and will feature both amateur and professional eaters as well as live entertainment from KISS tribute band DESTROYER Canada.
