What will you find there?

Food Cart Fest Vancouver is a gathering of over 20 of the city’s top Food Carts presented by Vancity, Arrival and The Streetfood Vancouver Society.

This year the festival is adding to its programming in a major way. New at Food Cart Fest is the Sunday Local. Operating adjacent to the festival, this 400-person capacity, licensed live-music patio will feature local acoustic talent on stage and showcase the best craft beer and wine the province has to offer.

Other activities include:

  • A giant ping pong area, which will be hosted by Ping Pong Club’s Michael Unger and feature casual play and tournaments for all skill levels.

  • An expanded kids’ recreation zone, which will be presented by Brick4Kidz and features fun, educational activities with giant Lego bricks.

  • Open-air markets produced in collaboration with the Eastside Flea and Blim.

  • Lastly, we’ll have Food Cart Fest favourites The Rad Pack DJs, who will be soundtracking the weekly event.

Last year, close to 5,000 people took part every week. Will you be one of those people this year?
