While it may feel like we are still in the grips of winter, the sunshine and (slowly) melting snow remind us that Spring is nearly here and with it comes food truck season! We are pleased to announce the early details of our 2018 What the Truck?! season.
Saturday, May 26, 3:00 – 8:00pm: Capital Boulevard (99 Avenue and 108 Street)
After last season’s wrap up event on Capital Boulevard, we are back again to kick off food truck season!
Sunday, August 26, 11:00am – 4:00pm: Re/Max Field (Edmonton Ballpark)
We are thrilled to be bringing back the Trucks in the Outfields to cap off the 2018 season! Previous events in 2015 and 2016 were fantastic fun and we are keeping our fingers crossed for sunshine for our last event of the year.
One of the things you may not know about our What the Truck?! events is that we seek to minimize menu duplication. We know food festivals such as this one are better when people have more variety and options, so we ask trucks to submit their menus in advance, and ask that similar items be changed or dropped.
But recently, we were thinking – why couldn’t we use this duplication to our advantage? Why not throw a bit of friendly competition into the mix? And with that, Truck Stop: Throwdown Edition was born.
Join us on August 15, 2012 for a pulled pork throwdown, where The Act, Nomad and Smokehouse BBQ will be putting their best sandwiches forward in the hopes of winning your vote!
What: Truck Stop: Throwdown Edition When: Wednesday, August 15, 2012 Where: Edmonton Public Schools Archives (10425 99 Avenue) Time: 5-8pm
The three trucks will be serving up slider-sized portions of their pulled pork, so you’ll have enough room to consider all three if you so choose!
To vote, we ask that you donate at least $2 to the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation in exchange for a ballot. Given the location of this event, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to partner with a charity with a great cause – learn more about how the Foundation supports early learning and full-day kindergarten here.
Stay tuned for more details this week on what else you can expect at Truck Stop!
