About

This festival is New England’s original celebration of the French-Canadian classic, poutine!   Restaurants from all over New England will entice you with their spin on this Québécois treasure.

Over our first four years, the festival was held on the grounds of the Budweiser Brewery in Merrimack, NH and at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester before that. The pandemic affecting every corner of the world in 2020 meant that a in-person event couldn’t be held — so we’re taking it on the road!

Ticket holders can travel to our participating restaurants throughout the region and support local restaurants, while getting out of the house and enjoying a discount on their poutine!

This event is hosted by the the Franco-American Centre of New Hampshire, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Manchester, NH.  All proceeds help support the Centre’s mission of preserving French language, culture, and heritage in New Hampshire and beyond.
