One more reason why Vancouver is an awesome place to live: Weekly Food Truck Festival at Sunset Beach.
Yes, you heard right. This summer the Vancouver food trucks will be circling their wagons in the Sunset Beach parking lot every Friday night. The festival will focus on the culinary creations of Vancouver’s mobile cooks, but it will also feature local art and music. The backdrop: well you know what’s down there – one of the most gorgeous spots to watch the sun dip away, rivalled only by Spanish Banks.
The weekly food-love-in will start at 5 p.m. and wrap up (unintentional pun) around 9 p.m, just as the sun sets.
Andrew Fielding, president of the Streetfood Vancouver Society, is hard at work getting the permits in order. He still needs approval from the Parks Department. He is also looking for corporate sponsorship to help with the funding.
Last year, a similar festival was held at the Olympic Village, with help from the Waldorf Hotel. The new plan would place the organizing power firmly in the hands of the cart owners. “This would be different…this would be our event,” claims Fielding.
In any form, Vancouverites win. No Fun City. Ha! We think not!
