You Need To Attend This Epic Street Food Festival In Ottawa
AND there's a flea market!
The line up of festivals just keeps growing! With the warmer weather and summer just around the corner, we can all feel festival season fast approaching. Whether you're someone that can't wait for BeerFest, or someone that loves all things chocolate, or someone that loves to completely zen out and do yoga, there is 100% a festival for you.
This festival is perfect for you if you love food trucks as well as flea markets. It's a combo of two festivals that both make summer awesome. From delicious food trucks to discovering vintage items that will add some uniqueness to your room, this festival will have you soaking up the sun and enjoying your entire day.
The Street Food Social and Flea Market is hosted the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation works to ensure that cancer patients and their families have access to the best care. This event is a great way for the foundation to raise awareness and funds. All rental fees that come from the vendors go directly to the Cancer Coaching programs and services. Head to this event to support the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and applaud them for all that they do.
This event is led in combination with the Food Truck Social which brings the Ottawa community together for a day filled with street food sampling and treasure hunting. From cute handmade jewellery to pretty vintage items, you will find the most unique things at this fun event.
This event is a perfect way to gather your BFFs, lay out a picnic blanket, grab some food and soak up the sun. There will be 10 food trucks serving up delicious foods and desserts. 10% of sales will go towards supporting local cancer care through the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
