Letter from the Publisher

James Beard once said that food is our common ground, a universal experience. How true in our region as we celebrate our incredible vast diversity and food cultures from quite literally around the globe!

Nothing beats a great meal with great company in a cool, local venue, and that’s what this publication is all about! Making all your options easy to find and accessible.

The team at YMM Magazine is excited to bring you another annual Food and Entertainment Guide showcasing all the local options for great food and entertainment in our region.

We have done our best to give you an up-to-date listing of all the places you can dine, hang out and enjoy this year in Fort McMurray and beyond. If you’re a restaurant owner and notice something incorrect, please send an email to our team at kerri@balsom.ca and we’ll get things updated for you online.

Thanks to our partners Fort McMurray Tourism and Wood Buffalo Economic Development Corporation for jointly managing this project with us, as well as Suncor Energy for being our presenting partner allowing us to showcase all that you can find on these pages. We are blessed to live in a collaborative, giving community and for that we are grateful.

Enjoy exploring all the events you can take in, restaurants you can dine in and experiences that will keep you entertained all year long!


Happy dining!
