The Annual Vancouver Summer Food Cart Festival

The Annual Vancouver Summer Food Cart Festival

There’s something about the arrival of summer that always conjures up the image of great eats. It may have something to do with the current Vancouver food scene practically exploding – the arrival of 15 new food trucks across the city and now the annual summer Food Cart Fest is launching this weekend. 

Presented by Arrival and the Streetfood Vancouver Society, 20 of the top food carts are gathering every week until late September to serve mouthwatering snacks and meals including and not limited to Aussie hand pies, deluxe grilled cheese and fusion fish tacos. The event also features community markets, live music from DJs, vendors, and more.

Taking place every Sunday from June 23 – September 22 at a brand new location 215 West 1st between Olympic Village and Cambie Bridge. The current site is a short walk from Canada Line’s Olympic Village Station and accessible by major bus routes along Cambie, Main, West 2nd Avenue and Broadway. There’s also the seawall bike route that makes it impossible to have any excuse for not attending.
