Recap: May 26, 2018 What The Truck?! at Capital Boulevard

Edmonton, you just keep getting hungrier and hungrier!

Thank you to everybody who made it out to Capital Boulevard and kicking off the 2018 season with us! The weather was in our favour, the Legislature fountains were on, music was in the air, and you came out ready to roll!

What The Truck?! May 26, 2018 at Capital Boulevard

15 of Edmonton’s food trucks were able to join us for this event as we returned to beautiful Capital Boulevard. We welcomed six new members to our What The Truck?! family: Burrazo, Ohana Donuts, Pizza Noli, The Hat on Wheels, and Via Cocoa Creamery. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we’re sad to have missed Family Dough in our May event but hope to see them out on the streets this season!

We’re so happy to see your response to our What The Fork?! initiative. For $1 per piece, event-goers rented utensils to use throughout the evening and reclaimed their deposit upon return of used cutlery. Thanks for helping us keep things sustainable!

Thank you to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta for turning on the fountains early this season and for organizing our live entertainment. Instrumental surf band, The Tsunami Brothers got the crowd dancing and cheering!

We’re always happy to have Edmonton’s Food Bank at our events. Thanks to your donations, we raised 131 kg in food and over $300 to help their cause. Way to go guys and keep ’em coming!

This year we wanted to thank those who donated and entries were provided for a chance to win the Golden Ticket! Congratulations to Christine S., you and three friends will have VIP seating at our next event at the Edmonton Valley Zoo on July 6th and be escorted to the front of the line at our trucks. Don’t worry about seating or lines, we got you!
