Food Day Canada

Celebrate the Canadian harvest!

What do we do on Saturday, August 4? We EAT, of course! It’s not just a regular day – it’s Canada’s day to shine, or rather smell, taste and savour the delicious food grown, harvested and prepared in our country.

Every year, on the Saturday of the August long weekend, we celebrate Food Day Canada.

Chefs and home cooks across Canada literally put CANADA on the menu. Everyone joins forces to create Canada’s largest feast from coast to coast to coast showcasing our incredible bounty of local foods.

It is a day to celebrate our farmers, fishermen, chefs, processors, food researchers and everyone involved in growing, preparing and bringing good Canadian food to our tables.
