Alberta on the Plate is a province-wide celebration of the incredible bounty grown and produced across our beautiful province.
Anchored by a ten-day dine around festival highlighting local restaurants and products, Alberta on the Plate is a new platform on which to connect consumers to agriculture by continuing the conversation started by initiatives like Alberta Open Farm Days.
For ten delicious days in August, participating restaurants offer multi-course, fixed price menus highlighting local producers, growers, distillers and brewers. These restaurants range from casual to fine dining and everything in between. Each menu has recommended local pairings to be sure you get the perfect match for your meal (not included in pricing).
Throughout the rest of the year, the festival helps chefs and restaurateurs to develop new relationships and/or strengthen existing relationships with local farms and producers. Alberta on the Plate also helps to share the Alberta food story with media and consumers through targeted outreach and its social channels.
Alberta on the Plate takes place in conjunction with Alberta Local Food Week, and wraps up the same weekend as Open Farm Days. Closing the loop of farm-to-table, it brings the same farm freshness to the plate all across Alberta.
