This year’s COVID-modified format has combined the signature event Taste of Fort McMurray and our YMM Eats event to create “Taste of YMM Eats presented by Suncor”.
The Taste of YMM Eats presented by Suncor will run from July 13-31, 2020 and is designed to focus on promoting the restaurants who are open, operating, and still providing great service to the Wood Buffalo Region during these unprecedented times.
Participating restaurants selecting a fixed-3-course menu with optional suggested drink pairings from items already on their standard menu. These items could be fan favourites, best sellers, or items the restaurant feels are amazing and more people should try, or try together. Taste of YMM Eats presented by Suncor menus will accompany standard menus during the event giving guests the option to support a great cause and enjoy the best the restaurant has to offer.
The donation is included in the price for guests and goes to support the work of Waypoints, a local social profit in our region.
Only restaurants participating in Taste of YMM Eats presented by Suncor are eligible to compete for coveted bragging rights of being “the best” in YMM.
Guests who visit the participating restaurants will be asked to rate their experience from 1-10 on Sweet, Savoury, Creative, Customer Experience, and Plating. The best overall score in all categories will win People’s Choice. Each time a guest votes with a provided code they will be asked if they want to enter to win prizes. When guests visit 6 (or more) separate restaurants they are entered to win prizes. Explore more of the Fort McMurray food scene while restaurant staff compete for your votes.
A judging panel selected by the Food Festival will visit each restaurant to decide awards in the following categories:
