Yelp Food Cart Fest Every Sunday at the Waldorf Hotel

Here’s more evidence that East Van’s Waldorf Hotel is becoming one of the hottest spots east of downtown: Following the success of the first-ever Waldorf Hotel’s Canada Day Block Party / Food Cart Festival this past July 1, the hotel is teaming up with Yelp and Street Food Vancouver for the Yelp Food Cart Fest, a food cart festival that will run every Sunday from July 29 – September 2, 2012!

The Yelp Food Cart Fest will be more than just the (second) largest gathering of food trucks in Vancouver ever (the first being the inaugural Waldorf Hotel’s Canada Day Block Party): the Fest will include a series of community markets, live music performances, family entertainment, and a 19+ beer garden at the hotel’s “outdoor tiki beach area.”

(Seriously, what could be more picturesque than enjoying an old-fashioned picnic at VanDusen’s Monet-esque Meadow Garden or surrounded by flowers on the Azalea Path?)
