Events Description


Edmonton Meals on Wheels is hosting the first annual YEG Hot Dog Fest – a month-long friendly food competition between local businesses to raise awareness, support and funds for Edmontonians in need.

Find a fabulous frank from the list of local contestants, head over to their shop during business hours to try it out, and then rate it online on the website. Your ratings will help Edmonton Meals on Wheels decide who will be crowned YEG’s Top Dog!

Edmonton Meals on Wheels is a volunteer-driven organization that has been combating food insecurity since 1969. For the past year, Edmonton Meals on Wheels had to put their traditional event-based fundraisers on hold to focus on the increased demand for their services since the beginning of COVID19. As they remain diligent on providing nutrition to more than 1,800 clients city-wide, they aim to build new relationships and strengthen existing partnerships throughout the YEG community.

Restaurants may register here.


Top Dog: The YEG Signature Hot Dog that received the most raving reviews, chosen by you!
