Haven’t been to a What the Truck?! event before?
Here are our tried-and-trusted Tips & Tricks as well as our Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any other questions while you’re at the event, you can always tweet us at @whatthetruckyeg or find one of our team members in a yellow What the Truck?! jackets.
This event will be our first trying out a new ticket system for ordering entree menu items at each truck. We appreciate the feedback that we received from previous events, and this system was devised to help improve line management and communication about food quantity available at each truck so that you can make it to multiple trucks. With it being our first attempt, we warmly welcome feedback! Which leads us to…
We will be continuing our contest for Golden Tickets for our September wrap-up event, and you’ll be able to fill out event feedback forms at our Information Tent onsite, as well as by tagging us in your photos on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #whatthetruck! We’d love to see what you’re eating.
There will be alcohol available for purchase at bars outside that are operate by Northlands staff. The entire event grounds are all-ages, but we will also have seating on both sides of a short fence if you do not feel comfortable sitting in the same area as the alcohol (which must be kept within the fenced area).
We will have picnic tables as well as patio seating set up outside. There is also some seating inside the Northlands Casino building if you wish to go inside. Bathrooms will also be located inside the building, and ATMs are available both inside and outside.
Edited to add (7/7): Unfortunately, this is one event that cannot accommodate four-legged friends because there are horses on the track, and we have to consider everyone’s safety with these large animals (especially the people who are handling them). Any dogs will not be allowed onto the event grounds. However, you could grab your food and head on over to enjoy it in Borden Park across the street!
The Park After Dark races will begin around 6:30PM, and the folks Northlands Park have also graciously set up a Kids Zone area with some activities for little ones.
Wear your best hat and you could win a prize package featuring four VIP Infield tickets to the Canadian Derby!
Transportation & Parking
Parking at Northlands is FREE for this event, and with plenty of space at their adjacent lots, as well as in the area around Borden Park, there will be plenty of room for everyone.
Since there will be alcohol present at the event, everyone at What the Truck?! would like everyone to get home safely! If you have been drinking, we urge you to consider alternative transportation home. We will be tying flag tape to lead the way between the Coliseum LRT station and Northlands Park.
We’re excited to announce that Uber, the app that connects you with a private driver at the tap of a button, will be offering new users their first ride free, up to $20 to or from What The Truck.
