The Vancouver Food Cart Festival that we knew and loved for the past 4 years is undergoing an exciting change this 2016 to bring us YVR Food Fest. This bigger and better event has evolved into a weekend-long celebration of food culture in Vancouver and beyond.

The hottest (and tastiest) event of the summer will run from August 5 to 7, 2016 and will take place in Olympic Village and the Science World Patio. On top of the usual food frenzy, the foodie festival has also expanded to feature a long-table dinner, food talks, private dinners, and cocktail parties.

If you’re a fan of food trucks and car-free celebrations, you’ll want to head to New Westminster next Saturday, August 22.

As if the Vancouver Food Cart Festival couldn’t get any more cool, they’ve gone and added a flea market to it.

If you haven’t already checked out the Food Cart Fest since its launch last year at the Waldorf Hotel, it’s time. In its new, more easily accessible location, the festival has turned into one of Vancouver’s most popular weekly events, hosting over 25 food trucks and thousands of weekly visitors.

Starting this weekend, the festival will be expanding and teaming up with The Eastside Flea to bring you a side of shopping with your deluxe grilled cheese.
