The seventh annual Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest, which is Canada’s largest food truck festival, is on Saturday, July 27 from 4 to 10 p.m. on Columbia Street. Produced by the Downtown New West BIA, the festival features more than 250 vendors and attracts thousands of people.
What can I expect?
Yummy food, fun and entertainment.
“Join in on the festivities and chow down on a scrumptious assortment of food trucks, including all your classic food truck favourites and newer up-and-coming food truck hits,” said a press release from the BIA. “Once you’ve gotten your food truck fix, quench your thirst at one of our beer and wine gardens and relax in a shaded patio under the backdrop of live music entertainment, sponsored by Westminster Savings Credit Union and specially curated by the Arts Council of New Westminster.”
The Chill Zone, which features plenty of seating and a DJ, is also a place where you can relax and enjoy a free Johnny’s Pops.
While you’re at the festival, you can also shop at the artisan market at Anvil Centre, where you’ll find a wide range of hand-crafted artisan goods.
How much does it cost?
Attendance is free – but you’ll want to bring cash to purchase food and bevvies, as well as to shop at the artisan market.
How do I get there?
Located on Columbia Street (between Eighth Street and the entrance to the Pattullo Bridge), the festival is a hop, skip and a jump away from the New Westminster and Columbia SkyTrain stations.
