Food and drink brings people together. Whether you are speaking about a family dinner, community BBQ, or a night out on the town, all good memories involve a good feast! Like these, this first edition of the Fort McMurray Food & Entertainment Guide is the product of a partnership and coming together of Your McMurray Magazine and Fort McMurray Tourism.
This guide launch is timed to be a part of new part of the Constant Comfort Fort McMurray Food Festival. The festival is shaping up to be more than just a five-day celebration of people getting to sample some tasty food and cold beverages. It’s a chance for the community to come together under the banner of the Food Festival, which incorporates several of the city’s signature events.
The aim is to showcase the talents of local chefs and food providers so people from Fort McMurray and the Wood Buffalo region get to know them better, sample their wares and in turn support the businesses owned by their neighbours and friends. This comes at a time when it will be a boom for the local economy, but also the rebuilding of Fort McMurray’s sense of community.
When it comes to food and entertainment in Fort McMurray and the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, there certainly is no shortage of options. This guide was put together to highlight all the great local spots and hopefully will get you out there to try somewhere you maybe haven’t been before! We reached out to many people in the culinary community to get their input and a complete listing and maps of hotspots.
While all efforts we’re made to try to include a complete list of all possible establishments in the region, we may not have gotten it perfect, so please if you wanted to see another place on the list, let us know and we’ll get it listed on our website and in future editions.
There are some fantastic places in our region so get out and give them a try!
Yours in partnership,
Your McMurray Magazine & Fort McMurray Tourism
