May 28 & 29 Recap, and Save the Date for June 18!

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!

2016 Season Announcement!

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.


Without further adieu, check out our 2016 dates!

And the What the Truck?! Golden Ticket Winners are…

All season, attendees to our What the Truck?! events this year have filled in feedback cards and posted pictures, in the hopes of winning a pre-entry pass to our final event of the year.

We’re ready to announce our two winners of the coveted Golden Tickets: congratulations to Stephanie Gonzales and Rosemary!

Stephanie won by filling out a form at our August 22 event at Telus Field (though being a food blogger, she also wrote a rad post about What the Truck?! at Northlands Park, too).

Rosemary tagged a photo at our June 14 Brunch on the Boulevard with the hashtag #wttgolden ticket.

Both Stephanie and Rosemary will be able to bring a friend for exclusive access to the trucks in the twenty minutes leading up to the start of our September 11, 2015 Churchill Square finale.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest!

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!

A New System for a New Location

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.
