Endless Boxes of Poutine Will Be Devoured at the 8th Annual World Poutine Eating Championship (#WPEC2017)

Over 20,000 PLAID NATION Fans Will Converge in Toronto to Witness the Largest Poutine Eating Contest in the World!

September 18, 2017 // Franchising.com // TORONTO - PLAID NATION fans from around the world will gather at Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square to experience the 8th Annual Smoke’s Poutinerie World Poutine Eating Championship (#WPEC2017). The epically jam-packed one-day Poutine ROCK N’ ROLL STAGE SHOW will satisfy all of your Weird, Wild, and Wacky cravings on October 14th, 2017 from 10:00am – 4:00pm. The event will feature three eating competitions with Professional Major League Eaters from all over the world taking the stage, aspiring Amateur Eaters who took first place in locally hosted Poutine Games – a series of Smoke-ified games, and last, but certainly not least a very hungry group of CEO’s vying for the position as the top fundraiser in the CEO Charity Challenge supporting Friends of We Care.

“As one of the most ENTERTAINING Eating Competitions in the World, our 8th edition of WPEC is set to be the most gravy-fueled French fry frenzy to date!”, said Ryan Smolkin, CEO (Chief Entertainment Officer) of Smoke’s Poutinerie and the creative mastermind behind WPEC. “Excitement is at an all-time high as PLAID NATION fans gear up for the most anticipated event of the year! As always, every Poutine Lover visiting our event can satisfy their mouthwatering desires with FREE POUTINE all day long!”

In 2016, the WPEC CEO Charity Challenge rocked its way to collecting a grand total of $54,000 in charitable donations to benefit Friends of We Care, and this year that mark is sure to be surpassed. There will be no shortage of lumberjack Canadiana plaid and 80’s glam rock tunes as the amps are cranked up to eleven with the premier KISS cover band Destroyer supplying the LIVE music and totally ROCKIN’ the square!

Joey “Jaws” Chestnut continues to hold the ULTIMATE Poutine Eating World Record of 25.5 pounds eaten in just 10 minutes! This year’s roster of professional eaters looking to break that record includes top names Carmen Cincotti (World #2 Ranked), Miki Sudo (World #5 Ranked and leading female), Darron Breeden (World #8 Ranked), Yasir Salem (World #12 Ranked), and Eric ‘Badlands’ Booker (World #18 Ranked) who will be battling for the EPIC Pro Championship title!

Smoke’s Poutinerie wants all of PLAID NATION to experience everything that this one of a kind event has to offer including tons of amazing events. WPEC visitors can have a blast in their best lumberjack plaid outfit with the Monster Energy Tattoo Parlor and Barber Shop, Poutine Photo Booth, GEOSTORM Prizing Booth, Gravy Pong Tournaments, and the launch of the all new official Smoke’s Poutinerie App.

WPEC will also feature the Smoke’s Poutinerie Food Trucks Fundraising Derby! Fans in attendance will be able to indulge in FREE POUTINE all day with two Smoke’s Poutinerie food trucks ROCKIN’ & ROLLIN’ on location. Things will get interesting as the two trucks compete to raise the most donations from generous Poutine Lovers to benefit the event’s charity partner, Friends of We Care.

We’ve gathered top brand sponsors from all over the world, with the likes of Monster, Maple Leaf Foods, Cardinal Meats, Kraft Heinz, and Warner Bros. who couldn’t wait to jump on board the Gravy Train to support the highly anticipated eating extravaganza!
