We can’t believe the event last weekend flew by so quickly, and how lucky we were to get the weather that we did!
On Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29, we were joined by 38 trucks at Northlands, just outside the Expo Centre, for our very first two-day kickoff event, and we couldn’t have asked for a better weekend to hold it. Despite a rainy weather forecast for the weekend, the water works held off until after 8PM both nights, and we were left with warm, bright afternoons to enjoy a ton of awesome food!
After what felt like one of the shortest winters on record, we’re ready to announce our 2016 Season details! This year we’ve decided to announce all the dates and locations at once in order to help everyone plan their season. Some trucks are already out on the road so you’ll be able to have a taste of summer well before our first date in May.
This will be an all ages event, complete with entertainment and as usual, delicious food truck fare! We’ll also be employing our ticketing system here to get another test in before our last event in September.
Stay tuned for more information about participating trucks, menus, and site map information!
As you know, this Friday is our first What the Truck?! Event at Northlands Park and we’re all chomping at the bit to host a What the Truck?! night in conjunction with Park After Dark. This event will also be our first licensed event, meaning you can enjoy an alcoholic beverage along with your food truck dishes.
You may have noticed in our menu announcement that the menus had fewer feature dishes than previous events. As you know, our number one issue with our events is that lineups can get long. We heard your frustrations after our May Churchill Event that some items sold out while you were waiting in line for them, and we’ve decided to test a ticket-based line management system for the first time on Friday.
