Winter hasn’t quite given up yet here in Edmonton, but hopefully it won’t be long until the trees are green, the sun is shining, and food trucks are once again a regular sight around the city! To help kick things off, we’re excited to share the details for our first What the Truck?! event of 2017:
WHAT: What the Truck?! 2017 Season Kickoff
WHEN: Sunday, May 14, 2017 from 12pm to 7pm
WHERE: Edmonton Expo Centre, Northlands (free parking!)
RSVP: On Facebook
Yes, that is Mother’s Day, so bring your Mom and enjoy some tasty food trucks! If this is your first time attending one of our events, be sure to read our tips & tricks.
We’re not quite ready to announce the lineup just yet, but there will be no shortage of options. Stay tuned to our website for the list of trucks, menus, and more in the coming days.
It has been amazing for me personally to see the food truck scene in Edmonton grow since we held our first event way back in June 2011. Last year we worked with nearly 100 different food trucks, which is even more incredible when you consider that a number of them have closed or transitioned into brick-and-mortar restaurants over the last few years. If you’re starting a food truck and want to get involved, you can join What the Truck?! here. One of the ways we help food trucks is by connecting them with hundreds of event opportunities every year using our Book the Trucks form.
This year we’ve decided to run a few less of our own events and will instead focus primarily on promoting the trucks and other events. We are getting ready to share more on that soon.
See you on May 14 at Northlands!
