Announcing: What the Truck?! at Al Fresco

We’re excited to officially announce that our first What the Truck?! event of the year will take place on Saturday, June 9 from 5-11pm in conjunction with 4th Street Promenade’s annual Al Fresco block party.

This will be the largest What the Truck?! we’ve ever organized, with ten of Edmonton’s premier food trucks ready to show the city why street cuisine is here to stay:

Best of all – the trucks will all be donating a portion of the evening’s proceeds to Zebra Child Protection Centre, Al Fresco’s charity of choice this year.

Al Fresco takes place primarily on 104 Street from Jasper Avenue to 102 Avenue. What the Truck?! will be located on 104 Street just north of 102 Avenue. It’s going to be a really exciting day, with the DECL Pancake Breakfast, City Market, and Pride Parade all happening before Al Fresco and What the Truck?! get started.

We are planning to post menus up on Tuesday, so check back for further details! We hope to see you on 104 Street on June 9 – please join our Facebook event and share with your friends!

So we are happy to announce a series of Truck Stops, our mini food truck festivals, which will take place in Old Strathcona. Every Thursday from 5-9 p.m. in May, you’ll be guaranteed great eats at McIntyre Park, where four trucks will be serving up dishes both savoury and sweet.
