Do you love food? Is eating out more than just a good meal to you, it’s about the whole theatrical experience? If so, then YYC Food & Drink Experience (YYC EXP) is for you. From March 15 to 31, this culinary festival is celebrating all that Calgary’s dining scene has to offer with prix-fixe menus at some of the city’s hottest restaurants and special culinary events.

YYC EXP consists of two types of experiences: One aspect of the festival features multi-course, prix-fixe menus from more than 90 Calgary restaurants. Stop by any of the participating restaurants during the festival for a special lunch ($25 or $35), three-course dinner ($35 or $45) or gourmet dining experience ($65 or $75). These menus are a great way to experience something different at an old favourite, or try out a new spot you’ve had your eye on.

The second part of YYC EXP is the signature culinary events featuring chef and restaurant collaborations and special one-time dining experiences. This year’s events range from a martini-making masterclass at FinePrint to a Mexican-Indian fusion dinner from Calcutta Cricket Club and Fonda Fora.
