Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Food Day Canada.

Food Day Canada takes place on the Saturday before the long weekend in August.

It is an annual celebration of — and education on — all things Canadian food pioneered by longtime Elora resident Anita Stewart in 2003 as a response to the mad cow disease crisis faced by beef farmers. 

Since then, it has grown and evolved into a national celebration for Canadians to share their food and their stories with each other while leading other nations in cultural diversity, food ethics, magnificent flavours … and fun! 

Stewart, a local food activist who became the first Canadian food laureate at U of G, died in October 2020 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. 

As a tribute to Anita’s legacy, Food Day Canada continues to actively promote our distinctly unique food culture with celebrations in person and online from coast to coast.
