CANADA'S “SUNNIEST CITY” WILL SOON BE SIZZLING!

The Sunshine Skillet and Food Festival is Medicine Hat's premier Culinary Event. And, you’re invited!

Whether you’re a chef or a chowhound, head to Medicine Hat experience this two-day event, which will be at the the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede and features two culinary experiences to tempt your palate:

See… Watch chefs battle it out during exciting amateur and professional culinary competitions. Chefs will require skill, speed and ingenuity to wow a judging panel with their creative plates, while working with limited equipment, basic pantry items, and a mystery basket of food that will be revealed at the beginning of each competitive leg. Trophies and cash prizes will be awarded, in addition to one Alberta-based chef in the professional category receiving recognition from the Alberta Culinary Tourism Alliance.

Taste… Smell… Feeling a little peckish from watching all the exciting culinary battling? Head over to the Food Festival, which will provide you the opportunity to graze through a farmer’s market-style food festival – an authentic way to explore culinary-oriented products and experience an array of nibbles from regional food purveyors.

The Sunshine Skillet and Food Festival sets the stage for everyone to Taste, Smell, See! Who needs a more tasty enticement to hit the road to Medicine Hat next spring and explore the Canadian Badlands?
