The success of the food cart gathering at the Waldorf Hotel’s Canada Day Block Party on July 1 has prompted the East Vancouver hotel to host Food Cart Fest on Sundays from July 29 to September 2.
The event will feature a number of Vancouver food trucks, including La Brasserie Street, Soho Road, Off the Wagon, Re-Up BBQ, Juice Truck, Mom’s Grilled Cheese, Cartel Taco, Pig on the Street, Guanco Truck, and Holy Perogy, as well as live music, DJs, family entertainment, an outdoor tiki beach area, and a beer garden.
Food Cart Fest will be held in conjunction with a community market that will change each week. The first community market will be curated by Jamie Leah Gill of Moon Rock, and will include more than 50 local vendors selling vintage, new, and upcycled clothing, shoes, and accessories, as well as jewellery, art, and home décor.
Food Cart Fest is a free, all-ages event (excluding the beer garden, which is 19+) that runs from 12 to 6 p.m.
