Alberta on the Plate is a province-wide celebration of the incredible bounty grown and produced across our beautiful province. 

Anchored by a ten-day dine around festival highlighting local restaurants and products, Alberta on the Plate connects consumers to agriculture through our local restaurant industry and by continuing the conversation started by initiatives like Alberta Open Farm Days. 

Throughout the year, Alberta on the Plate shares the Alberta food story with media and consumers through targeted outreach and its social channels.  This includes celebrating and sharing the stories of our local restaurants, producers, farms, destinations and businesses to encourage visitation and investment in our local food economy.  AOTP also helps chefs and restaurateurs to develop new relationships and/or strengthen existing relationships with local farms and producers.

Each year during Local Food Week in August, AOTP hosts a province-wide Dine Around where participating restaurants offer multi-course, fixed price menus highlighting local producers, growers, distillers and brewers. These restaurants range from casual to fine dining and everything in between.  Each menu has recommended local pairings to be sure you get the perfect match for your meal (not included in pricing).

Alberta on the Plate takes place in conjunction with Alberta Local Food Week, and wraps up the same weekend as Open Farm Days.  Closing the loop of farm-to-table, it brings the same farm freshness to the plate all across Alberta.
