Summer is almost here! The weather is warming up, and it has been wonderful to be able to get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine.
As someone who absolutely adores festival season, 2020 is a bit of a bummer. Most (all?) of the festivals are cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. But, don’t despair! If you are a food lover, I just learned some exciting news. Wild Heart Collective and Kingsway are coming together to put on a drive-thru foodtruck festival, The Free Wheelin’ Drive Thru Foodtruck Fest, featuring your favourite 124th Street Grand Market Foodtrucks!
You can show up in your car (or even bike!), get your favourite foodtruck food, and enjoy a little socially distant fun today from 4-8pm. All of the menus will be posted on the foodtrucks’ social media, so you can start salivating now!
Participating foodtrucks include: ·
- Drift Food Truck
- Calle Mexico Restaurant and Food Trucks
- Jackie O’s Street Treats
- Coast Lunch Box
- Curbside Food Truck
- Tiffin Fresh Kitchen
Who’s excited? What are you going to get? I have to say – I am eyeing Death by Donuts. What a way to go!
And remember to bring something for the Edmonton Food Bank as they will be collecting donations as well. While this summer looks different, that doesn’t mean we can’t take advantage of the unique events that Edmonton has to offer. I’ll be staying tuned to events happening in and around our city, so be sure to follow me on social media and my blog.
I can’t wait to see what other creative ways Edmonton finds to get into the festival spirit while staying safe!
