“We are thrilled to have 70 restaurants participating this year and are excited to bring locals and visitors together to show our support for Calgary restaurants," says Irena Knorr, Culinary Program Director at Culinary Marketing Strategies. "We also have some amazing signature culinary events, like collaboration dinners with visiting chefs and themed wine-pairing dinners. There’s no better way to explore Calgary’s culinary scene and find some new favourite restaurants.”
