YEG FOOD CRAWL
Edmonton Little Italy
December 8, 2016
We are going to "crawl" into Little Italy in the evening of December 8th (Thursday). Just like before, we are going to bring participants in a staggered eating process in one night by having one course of a meal at each of the four locations (eateries) and finishing at a place for tea/coffee. As a participant, you will also get to meet the people behind these delicious dishes and hear about their stories.
Participating patrons are going to walk in a group between restaurants, and will stop for approx. 30 minutes at each location.
YEG Food Crawl is a project funded by McCauley Revitalization to provide exposure to the local restaurants and to showcase the McCauley area as a safe and viable area to enjoy.

About McCauley Community (read more)
McCauley is a vibrant and ethnically diverse inner city neighbourhood in Edmonton, Alberta undergoing revitalization. It is named for Matthew McCauley, the first mayor of Edmonton, and is located just to the north east of the Downtown core. McCauley is famous as the home of dozens of religious buildings concentrated in a small area as well as being a large venue for the 1978 Commonwealth Games.
The neighbourhood is roughly triangle-shaped, bounded on the north by 111 Avenue/Norwood Boulevard, the west by 101 Street, and the south east by the LRT line and the old Canadian National Railway right of way.
About Edmonton Little Italy (read more)
Local businesses established Viva Italia District Association as its own distinct association in 2014 to develop and promote the spirit of community along Edmonton’s 95 Street. Formerly part of the Chinatown Little Italy Business Revitalization Zone, the association now focuses its efforts on specifically promoting and celebrating the Little Italy streetscape.
Long known for its anchor store, the Italian Centre Shop, this neighbourhood is experiencing a strong revitalization. New businesses and restaurants are moving to 95 Street to capitalize on the distinctly European character that has flourished here since 1959.
Those longing for a taste of Europe need only stroll 95 Street to feel enveloped by the warmth and charm of the local shops and restaurants.
Giovanni Caboto Park sits at the heart of Little Italy and is truly community gathering place. The statue of one of the area’s first entrepreneurs, Frank Spinelli plays cards in Giovanni Caboto Park, always with room for friends. There’s the summer spray park and playground that brings community members and visitors alike out to enjoy Little Italy’s best green space. Gorgeous towering elm trees dot the park, creating shade on a sunny day, and the perfect place for a picnic. All the amenities are nearby, so pick up lunch and join us!
