Canada150 - #eatalberta150 contest with Alberta Food Tours Inc.

To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday (Canada150), Alberta Food Tours, Inc. is sharing the best of Alberta’s food scene with the world through an Instagram* contest. We encourage participants from throughout the province – from big cities to farmers in their fields – to post photos of their favourite Alberta foods on Instagram using the hashtag #eatalberta150.

In keeping with our Canada150 theme, there will be 150 #eatalberta150 contest prizes awarded from June 1, 2017 – August 7, 2017  with 12 Grand Prizes awarded on Canada Day (July 1) long weekend and Food Day Canada (August 5) long weekend.

Our goals are to increase awareness of Alberta as a food destination, to showcase our amazing partners and greater food community throughout the province and to engage as many Alberta food lovers as possible in building this bountiful story. It’s our way of celebrating our nation’s 150th birthday.
