About Festival YUL EAT

Festival YUL EAT was launched in September 2014 in Montréal, with the goal of bringing together all audiences around culinary art and local flavours. Following editions at the Olympic Stadium and in the Old Port of Montréal, the festival settled in the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles in 2018. Its name reflects a desire to make Montréal and its surroundings shine via the use of the code of the Montréal International Airport — YUL, with the word EAT doubling as an acronym in French:


E for Expérience
A for Appétit
T for Terroir


Today, Festival YUL EAT is the destination of choice for epicureans, gourmets and culinary creativity enthusiasts. It offers a spectacular setting for discovering as well as enjoying food and alcohol prepared by local talents, highlighting Montréal as a gastronomic epicentre. The festival strives to support innovative, high quality, eco-responsible culinary practices from the whole restaurant industry, from producers to chefs, sommeliers, and artisans.
