What started as a gathering of food carts in the Waldorf Hotel’s parking quickly became a much-loved, city-wide phenomenon. Every weekend over the summer, upwards of 5,000 people swarm to Olympic Village to take in Vancouver’s exploding street food scene. Co-presented by Vancity and Streetfood Vancouver, Food Cart Fest was given honours for Best Food Event in the Georgia Straight’s Golden Plate Awards.
Not exclusively for foodies though, Food Cart Fest is also about enjoying the summer with friends and family. Complementing the rotating cast of trucks are community markets, DJs, artisanal food vendors, kids’ activities, and urban gardening workshops. Food Cart Fest is proudly boasts a zero waste mandate, which is achieved via support from title sponsor Vancity and their community partners Recycling Alternatives and Green Chair.
