The Event: YYCaesarFest is a one day sampling event just like other beverage style sampling events, but with caesars!.
Stampede Grounds, May 14th 2020
Legend has it, bartender Walter Chell was tasked with creating a new signature cocktail for the brand new Italian reatsaurant in the Calgary Inn, named Marco's. Walter decided he'd take inspiration from his favorite dish that he longed for since leaving itially and becoming a world traveller,Spaghetti Alle Vongole, which is served with fresh tomato sauce and clams. The guests at the restaurant loved it. Soon so did the city, the province, the counrty and the entire world. The rest is history. In 2010 the Canadian government declaired the Casear as Canada's National Cocktail. In 2020 Calgary is officially taking it back! You don't want to miss this!
Celebrate the Caesar all week! During the week following the YYCaesarFest many of the events participants will have their custom creations available at local businesses thoughout Calgary and the area. Stay tuned for more information about the Caesar Week participants and locations.
