In order to participate, a restaurant (or food service establishment) must meet these minimum requirements:

  • The establishment is in Alberta.
  • The establishment is in good standing with Alberta Health Services (including following all COVID-19 safety measures as outlined by AHS).
  • The establishment features local ingredients on the menu throughout the year (not just for the festival).
  • The establishment is committed to offering at least one (1) festival menu options for the festival period.

Thanks to our wonderful partners, there is no registration fee for restaurants to participate in the AOTP 2021 Dine Around.  We simply ask that you donate a gift certificate that we can use for giveaways and media.

You can pick from our list of options for whichever best suits your needs, and however many you want to offer.  Each menu must include at least THREE local producers/farms, as well as 2 recommended beverage pairings using local products (not included in pricing). 
 
You can absolutely use existing dishes to build your menus; however, we encourage you to incorporate something new and different as well to keep your menu exciting! 
 

Absolutely!  Caterers can participate as long as you have a business licence, a predetermined pick up location that will remain the same throughout the program, and all food prep, storage and transportation takes place in an approved commercial kitchen and follows AHS regulations.

We love all cultural influences and cuisines!  As long as your menu(s) have at least 3 local ingredients included, you are good to go!  Alberta itself is made up of so many different cultures, we are thrilled to have a similar variety represented on the plates as well.

Nope! However, we do encourage you to add a recommended non-alcoholic local beverage, such as a craft soda, juice, tea, etc.  If you need help finding some great options, let us know – we can help!

Absolutely!  We have an Alberta Ingredient Database that we share with all our participating restaurants that includes producers from across Alberta.  We also host networking sessions throughout the year so that you can meet some of the fantastic local suppliers.  Looking for something not found in our database?  Reach out – chances are we can help you find it!
