Street Food City, Dine Out Vancouver Festival’s hugely popular “food truck pod” featuring some of the Lower Mainland’s best and most affordable mobile eateries, returns for its eighth annual edition. Taking over the renovated north plaza at the Vancouver Art Gallery (recently renamed šxʷƛ̓ənəq Xwtl’e7énk Square as part of the city’s First Nations reconciliation initiatives), the food truck festival runs Monday, January 21st to Sunday, January 27th.
Street Food City 2019
Where: Vancouver Art Gallery, North Plaza on Georgia Street
When: January 21 to January 27, 2019
Monday to Thursday: 11:00am to 3:00pm
Friday to Sunday: 11:00am to 5:00pm
More than 20 food trucks and carts will rotate throughout the week — meaning you’ll want to check back daily. From Disco Cheetah’s Korean-style tacos, burritos and rice bowls; to Rolling Cashew’s array of good-enough-for-a-carnivore vegan options; to Via Tevere Express’s Neapolitan sandwiches baked in a 900-degree wood-fired oven — there truly is something for everyone. Be sure to save room for dessert: Cannoli King will be standing by with authentic Italian pastries, while Slavic Rolls turns out crispy baked cinnamon rolls with a variety of decadent fillings.
Plentiful onsite tables mean you can feast with co-workers and friends while your meal is still fresh and hot as can be. Tents provided by sponsor EVO Car Share will ensure potential rain doesn’t dampen the fun. Further enlivening the scene will be music courtesy of JackFM (broadcasting live from the plaza) on Monday, while Friday through Sunday will feature an array of live DJs (specially curated by Siegel Entertainment) between noon and 4:00pm.
