Southern Alberta’s Premiere Culinary Event
May 19 - 20, 2017
The Sunshine Skillet Food Festival in Medicine Hat, Alberta, is a new exciting culinary event featuring a gourmet dinner, a live cooking competition for amateur and professional chefs and a farmers’ market style food festival. The Sunshine Skillet celebrates regional food and offers something for both foodies and families alike.
The Sunshine Skillet Food Festival begins with a five course gourmet meal, created by a five chef collaboration and served in a truly signature Medicine Hat location. Using regionally sourced food items and accompanied with wine pairings the Sunset Dinner is a truly unforgettable experience.
Throughout the weekend the Sunshine Skillet features Alberta’s only live cooking competition for both amateur and professional chefs. Held at the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede Auditorium chefs battle it out using only two pots, one burner and 30 minutes to prepare their best dish with three mystery items. Celebrity judges travel to Medicine Hat from around the province to choose the Top Chef and award a $1000.00 Grand Prize in each category.
