FOOD CART FEST
Back when we were growing up, the only food sold out of a cart in Vancouver was hot dogs and chestnuts. Kids these days don't know how good they have it - with over 100 food trucks, carts, and vendors permitted to sell food on Vancouver's streets, the options are endless. There's even an App that locates the food truck hours and locations, allowing you to find a vendor by name, location, or food type.
And just in case you're not much of a food truck hunter, you're in luck. Food Cart Fest Vancouver gathers over 20 food trucks to the Olympic Village every Sunday through the summer. Their website lists all the participating carts - there is definitely something for every budget and taste. But be prepared to wait in line for the most popular trucks (like Tacofino). And if you're thirsty (and over 19), we've heard the beer garden is a great thirst-quencher.
Admission if $2.50 or free for Vancity members or with a non-perishable food donation to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.
