Calgary Food War

Come to our table and enjoy the culinary contributions from our rich cultures in an accommodating edutainment platform. At Calgary Food War, the public is invited to learn about culinary traditions and enjoy food from professionals and cultural ambassadors. Contributors from Afro Canadian/ Caribbean cultures come together to promote harmony by cooking foods from their cultures and compete for “best-dish” in a fun atmosphere.

Beyond the Afro-Canadian/ Caribbean communities, this event also hosts Art administrators, community leaders, and heads of local businesses and art organizations in a healthy competition to cook different meals in a challenge to know who makes the food better.
