Calgary, CAN: Spring Food Truck Frenzy!

By Julia  |  YAA


Did you know: for just $5 (or $0 for those under 12), you have access to an event featuring 20 GOURMET FOOD TRUCKS!

From 11am-7pm on both Friday (April 24) and Saturday (April 25) of this week, YYCFoodTrucks is putting on aspring food truck frenzy that you’d regret not going to.

As with most of the big food truck events, this one takes place in East Village at RiverWalk Plaza.

Let me summarize this for you: for lunch, dinner, or any time you please between 11 and 7, you can have what will most likely be the best food you’ve had all week. There’s options for everyone! Maybe a smoked meat hash from Red Wagon Diner. Or nacho perogies from Perogy Boyz. There’s even an entirely vegetarian food truck, Yummi Yogis! And of course, no food truck event is complete without some of Fiasco Gelato‘s latest (and, let’s be honest, addictive) gelatoconcoction.
