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!



This event introduced 8 new trucks to the crew for this event – Bo Thai (who super old school WTT fans might remember from long ago), Calle MexicoCanadian BrewtruckDa Vinci GelatoHot MessPampaThe Pie Eatery and The Wafflery, and we had an excellent night dancing with our dinner to some awesome tunes from DJ Thomas Culture, Brad Wilkinson, DJ Dylan Gray, The Hugonaut, and DJ EK!


September 11 also marked a very special evening in What the Truck?! history! Edmonton City Councillor Andrew Knack stood in as a “much shorter Mayor Don Iveson” to present us with a proclamation from the City of Edmonton, and September 11, 2015 went down in history as “What the Truck Day”!



On top of the trucks, DJs and Councillor Knack, we would be remiss if we did not thank a handful of people for helping bring our finale event together!

Our volunteers are second-to-none, and our events would not be possible without each and every one of you. (If you’re interested in volunteering next season, send us an e-mail to team@whatthetruck.ca!)



We also want to thank the Downtown Edmonton Community League, GFL Environmental Corp and St. John Ambulance – You guys rock!


And last, but most certainly not least, we want to thank YOU! Without attendees, we’d simply be a group of people hanging out for dinner in a really big space, and we can’t express how thankful we are that time and time again, Edmontonians have spent their hard-earned free time (and cash) coming out our events in the midst of a summer full of festivals, all in the name of supporting local businesses.

If you came to even ONE event this season, we’d love to get feedback from you about how you thought this year went, as well as listen to any suggestions you have for locations, entertainment, or anything else event-related! Just like the Golden Ticket cards, we read EVERY entry (and sometimes you’ll see changes or event locations that you suggested), and you can let us know your final thoughts for the year here!



We will be looking to add one new team member to the group in the new year, so if you think you’d be a wicked addition, keep your eyes on the website for a detailed post at the beginning of 2016. We can’t wait to see everyone out again next season!2015-09-21 13.47.00

What: What the Truck?! 
Where: Sir Winston Churchill Square
When: Friday, September 11, 2015
Time: 4-8pm

RSVP on Facebook!

Is this your FIRST What the Truck?! event? Awesome!

We’re happy you could join us! Check out our trusty Tips & Tricks and Frequently Asked Questions pages – they’re chock full of all the best advice we can give for your first food truck event experience. If you run into any trouble or have any questions, feel free to flag down one of our team members (in a blue WTT shirt or yellow WTT jacket), or tweet us @whatthetruckyeg and we’ll do our best to help you out!

Venue Information

While Churchill Square is a popular location for events, we want to remind everyone that bikes, skateboards, rollerblades and smoking are all not permitted in Churchill Square. There will be some seating on the tiered area next to Tix on the Square, as well as some green space and a few tables and chairs available alongside 99th Street. You can also sit in the plaza outside City Hall! We encourage you to bring your blankets, or collapsible picnic chairs if you’re looking to set up a meeting spot for you and your friends.

There will be bathrooms, an ATM and St. John’s Ambulance staff onsite all near the southwest corner of the sitemap. As well, your furry four-legged friends ARE allowed in Churchill Square, but must remain on-leash (and of course, you must clean up after them).

With such warm weather, our fingers are crossed that we will see the fountains at City Hall on one more time this year!

Transportation & Parking

There is quite a bit of construction in the area, so your best bet for parking will be the Library parkade or at Edmonton City Centre. It’s also a beautiful day for public transit, and the Churchill LRT station is immediately below the event grounds!

If you’d prefer to Uber, we will be offering new users their first ride free, up to $20 to or from What The Truck.

Follow these steps to create your Uber account:
1. Sign up here using the code WhatTheTruck or go to uber.com/go/WhatTheTruck
2. Download the free app for iPhone, Android or Windows
3. Sign into your account, and request your ride when you’re ready to go!
For the first time ever, we will be enjoying TWO separate DJ stations during the event to help cover the larger footprint for the event!
Over near Three Bananas, you’ll be partying it up with our resident rockstar  DJ Thomas Culture (@ThomasCulture) and his amigos Brad Wilkinson (@BRDWLKNSN), DJ Dylan Gray, and The Hugonaut (@thehugonaut), and over by the City Hall fountains, we’re thrilled to be bringing back DJ_EK (@elekin)!
Get ready to enjoy one last taste of summer tomorrow!

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!   What the Truck?! at Telus Field

For The Hungry Dodo, Roots Patties, Spiced! Food Truck, and even our DJ_EK, it was their first What the Truck?! event.

What the Truck?! at Telus Field

A special thanks goes out to Macy at Telus Field (and of the Oilers Entertainment Group) who worked tirelessly with us to pull off such a great afternoon at the ball park. We also couldn’t have done it without volunteers helping to keep the field neat and tidy!

After the crowds we saw in May, we decided that it would be only fitting to expand our road closure and make this our largest event to date – we’ll share which 35 trucks will be joining us and what tasty dishes they’ll be serving up in the coming weeks!

If you want to win a pair of Golden Tickets to this event (where you and a friend can come early, skip the lines, and order from as many trucks as you like), your last chance to enter will be this Saturday, August 22 at Telus Field – be there or be square!

August 22, 2015 Trucks in the Outfield Menus

Get ready for an afternoon of picnicking in the outfield! Here are the menus for the trucks that will be joining us next week. Don’t forget that we’ll have our ticketing system in place (no pre-purchase of tickets needed), and this is your last chance to enter our Golden Ticket contest before we announce the winners (on August 28th)!

Bring a blanket to spend an afternoon picnicking in the outfield. Don’t forget your baseballs and gloves*, because when else will you get the chance to play a game of catch on the infield at Telus Field? As usuall, we’ll have a DJ there to add awesome tunes to your Saturday afternoon, and we’ll have a glitter tattoo tent as well! Telus Field is right on the Number 9 bus route (conveniently on your way downtown from the Fringe Festival). And if you’re worried about parking, don’t be! Telus Field has graciously provided their 750 stall lots for FREE public parking during our event. We know there’s lots going on in the city during the summer, but think you’d have a great time making a stop to visit the trucks in the outfield at our event on August 22nd!
