Join us for a final farewell to Park After Dark, where we’ll be set up next to the racetrack for a night at the races. This year marks the last season of horse racing at Northlands, so be sure to get your fill this Friday July 8. Like all of our other events, it is FREE to attend (you just purchase from the trucks directly), and parking is FREE too!

Where: Northlands Park (7410 Borden Park Road NW, Edmonton, AB)

The Edmonton Food Bank will be on site collecting monetary and non-perishable food donations at our events this year! Watch for their volunteers roaming the events – they’ll be happy to collect your donations!
Is this your FIRST What the Truck?! event? Awesome!
We’re happy you could join us! Check out our trusty Tips & Tricks and Frequently Asked Questions pages – they’re chock full of all the best advice we can give for your first food truck event experience. If you run into any trouble or have any questions, feel free to flag down one of our team members (in a blue WTT shirt or yellow WTT jacket), or tweet us @whatthetruckyeg and we’ll do our best to help you out!
There will be alcohol available for purchase at bars outside that are operate by Northlands staff. The entire event grounds are all-ages, but we will also have seating on both sides of a short fence if you do not feel comfortable sitting in the same area as the alcohol (which must be kept within the fenced area).
We will have picnic tables set up outside as well as a beer garden. There is also some seating inside the Northlands Casino building if you wish to go inside. Bathrooms will also be located inside the building, and ATMs are available both inside and outside.
PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, this is one event that cannot accommodate four-legged friends because there are horses on the track, and we have to consider everyone’s safety with these large animals (especially the people who are handling them). Any dogs will not be allowed onto the event grounds. However, you could grab your food and head on over to enjoy it in Borden Park across the street!
Transportation & Parking
Parking at Northlands is FREE for this event, and with plenty of space at their adjacent lots, as well as in the area around Borden Park, there will be plenty of room for everyone.
Since there will be alcohol present at the event, everyone at What the Truck?! would like everyone to get home safely! If you have been drinking, we urge you to consider alternative transportation home.
