Well, it might be a little rainy tomorrow but that can’t damper our excitement for the first event of 2016! Bring your raincoat, your rain boots, and your appetite!
What: What the Truck?!
When: Saturday, May 28 & Sunday, May 29, 2016
Time: 3-8pm both days
The Edmonton Food Bank will be on site collecting monetary and non-perishable food donations at our events this year! Watch for their volunteers roaming the events – they’ll be happy to collect your donations!
We’re also going to have members of the Red Shoe Society providing volunteer help on site all weekend! If you see them, be sure to chat with them about all the amazing work they do supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charity in Northern Alberta.
Is this your FIRST What the Truck?! event? Awesome!

If you’re taking the LRT to the event, you’ll see our location as soon as you come over the pedway toward the Expo Centre. We’ll be in front of Halls G and F. There will be a fee for parking on Saturday, but no fee for parking after 3pm on Sunday.
PLEASE NOTE: only service dogs are permitted at this particular event.
There will be washrooms, St. John Ambulance, and ATMs on site. There will also be a beer garden!
Transportation & Parking
As stated above, the event will be easily accessible via LRT. Parking is available on the Northlands grounds, and will be subject to their usual rate of $16 on Saturday due to other events happening on site. Sunday, however, will be free after 3pm.
On Saturday, we’re excited to have DJ_EK (@elekin) provide the soundtrack to your food truck eats!
