What about gluten free or vegetarian options?

Check with the individual vendor. Some make gluten free or vegan gravy and will have signage on their trailer/truck. Most vendors do have vegetarian options. Vegetarian poutine may have meat based gravy, just be sure to double check. If you have dietary concerns, please speak directly with the food vendor so they may accommodate. 


Where can I enjoy an alcoholic beverage?

Visit one of Sparks Street's amazing patios, pubs, or restaurants who will have full menu and drink lists available. 


Can I bring my poutine into a Sparks Street patio, pub, or restaurant?

Many do try to accommodate this, with the purchase of a beverage, but please check with the establishment first.


So there's no admission?

Just pay for what you eat.
