Canada’s Great Kitchen Party
St. John’s

Regional Qualifier for the Canadian Culinary Championships

In late August, Canada's Great Kitchen Party
will be announcing plans for Fall 2020.
Thank you for your support!

On November 1st, 2019 over 200 guests enjoyed an evening of celebration and elevation of Canadian culture in food, sport and music. The chefs came both to compete for their chance to be on the podium and to share their creative talent with the guests. Athletes from amateur, para and pro sports shared their stories and guests were on the dance floor enjoying the performance of some of Canada’s greatest musicians! It was an inspiring and impactful experience as the city united to provide Canadian youth the opportunity to be extraordinary in food, music and sport. We are proud to support Community Food Centres Canada, MusiCounts and B2ten.
