Our mid-season event was one our most popular evenings yet! Thank you to everybody who made it out to the Edmonton Valley Zoo and spending your night with us. We had a mix of sun and showers but you guys have proven that you’re willing to do anything to try our trucks!
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!
A FEW FINAL TIDBITS FOR WHAT THE TRUCK?! AT CAPITAL BOULEVARD.
Transportation & Parking: The closest LRT station is Grandin, just two blocks to the west. Corona is also close, just a couple of blocks north. Street parking is available on surrounding streets, but note there is no parking right at the event site.
Public Washrooms: Available inside the Edmonton Federal Building. Be sure to check out the visitor’s centre while you’re there!
Donations Accepted: The Edmonton Food Bank will be on site collecting both food and monetary donations.
Waste: Help our volunteers keep the site clean by putting your trash and recyclables in the appropriate bins!
Fur-mily Friendly: Dogs are welcome too! Please keep all dogs on a leash and be sure to clean up after your furry friends.
Entertainment: It’s not a party without some tunes. Our DJ is ElectroKinetica, a member of the PüR LuV Entertainment crew. Check him out!
Seating: There’s plenty of seating in and around the Federal Building plaza – enjoy the fountains while you eat! They discourage bikes, skateboards, and rollerblades though.
Be weather wise: Last but not least, please dress appropriately for the weather. We’re ready to feed you, rain or shine!

It has been a heck of a season, and honestly, we can’t believe how quickly it flew by this year! We wrapped up What the Truck?! in Churchill Square on Friday, September 11 with 35 trucks, and had a fantastic time doing so. The weather was beautiful, the lines were short, and the food was amazing – the trucks really outdid themselves!
