Can you believe it’s already May? Food truck season is among us! Great to see so many food trucks up and running already. We’re kicking off the season with not one but TWO days of food truck goodness! This year we’re expecting to have over 40 trucks at Northlands, which will be our biggest yet!

Without further adieu, here are the trucks who will be participating in our May event. We will be adding more trucks as we confirm final details, so please check back!

Food trucks help Fort McMurray evacuees at Northlands

Last week wildfires forced the evacuation of Fort McMurray and destroyed or damaged thousands of homes and other structures in the city. Many are temporarily calling Edmonton home as a result and individuals and organizations all across our community have stepped up over the last week to help. Tonight the local food truck community had an opportunity to help in our own unique way!

Food Trucks at Northlands

Northlands planned an outdoor BBQ for evacuees registered at the Edmonton Reception Centre and they reached out to us for some assistance cooking French fries. We put the call out to all the food trucks and very quickly had twelve that stepped up to offer their deep fryers and time:

Throughout the evening guests had the opportunity to get outside and enjoy piping hot French fries from those trucks. We’re thrilled to have played even a small part in helping displaced Fort McMurray residents feel more comfortable during their time here in Edmonton.

Thanks again to the twelve trucks that came out tonight to help!

2016 Season Announcement!

After what felt like one of the shortest winters on record, we’re ready to announce our 2016 Season details! This year we’ve decided to announce all the dates and locations at once in order to help everyone plan their season. Some trucks are already out on the road so you’ll be able to have a taste of summer well before our first date in May.

2016 What the Truck?! Team Member Recruitment

“Hello, is it me you’re looking for?”

Well, it might be!

WTT_YeoThe 2015 season went by in what seemed like a flash, and for the WTT team especially, the end of the year was very bittersweet. If you haven’t already read her heartfelt farewell post, Sharon’s yellow What the Truck?! jacket has been hoisted and hung from the rafters. We can’t begin to put into words how dearly she will be missed, and our team dinner meetings are certainly not the same without her.

Just like the Edmonton Oilers will never have another Mark Messier, Jari Kurri, or Wayne Gretzky, we aren’t looking for the next Sharon Yeo for the 2016 season; they can’t be replicated or replaced. We are looking for a few new members to join the team… but this year, we don’t have a clear-cut idea as to who we’re looking for quite yet, and it’s probably because we haven’t met you.

Wrap Up: Friday, September 11, 2015 What the Truck?! Finale

It has been a heck of a season, and honestly, we can’t believe how quickly it flew by this year! We wrapped up What the Truck?! in Churchill Square on Friday, September 11 with 35 trucks, and had a fantastic time doing so. The weather was beautiful, the lines were short, and the food was amazing – the trucks really outdid themselves!

We received excellent feedback from attendees that evening about the increased event space, more room between trucks, and having more places to sit down and enjoy their meals. With more than 250 menu items, if you are a fan of having options, this was the event to be at! Continue reading “Wrap Up: Friday, September 11, 2015 What the Truck?! Finale”

And the What the Truck?! Golden Ticket Winners are…

All season, attendees to our What the Truck?! events this year have filled in feedback cards and posted pictures, in the hopes of winning a pre-entry pass to our final event of the year.

We’re ready to announce our two winners of the coveted Golden Tickets: congratulations to Stephanie Gonzales and Rosemary!

Stephanie won by filling out a form at our August 22 event at Telus Field (though being a food blogger, she also wrote a rad post about What the Truck?! at Northlands Park, too).


Rosemary tagged a photo at our June 14 Brunch on the Boulevard with the hashtag #wttgolden ticket.

Both Stephanie and Rosemary will be able to bring a friend for exclusive access to the trucks in the twenty minutes leading up to the start of our September 11, 2015 Churchill Square finale.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest!

Wrap-Up: August 22, 2015 Trucks in the Outfield at Telus Field

It was bases loaded last Saturday for a What the Truck?! at yet another new venue – Telus Field!
What the Truck?! at Telus Field We had 12 trucks in attendance serving everything from Grilled Cheese to Filipino street food, and plenty of picnicking space to go around. What the Truck?! at Telus Field   We also received some great feedback from attendees that they loved being able to put down a picnic blanket as a home base, and divide and conquer the trucks without eating in line!   Continue reading “Wrap-Up: August 22, 2015 Trucks in the Outfield at Telus Field”
