A Huge Food Truck Festival is Happening By Toronto Beaches This Weekend
A huge gathering of the best food in the city.
The Toronto Food Truck Festival is back for another year, and Woodbine Park has never tasted so delicious! At Woodbine Park this long weekend, all beach-goers and foodies unite for fun, food and drink. You can expect to see foods from over 50 different food trucks this year, from some of your city favourites and A-list truck vendors like Heirloom Toronto, Eva's Original Chimneys, Buster's Sea Cove, Fully Loaded and more.
The festival runs from Friday to Monday, and they are hosting a whole variety of events like hilarious eating competitions, DJ spins, live music at the bandshell as well as showcasing some of Toronto's best local talent. Of course, there is also that undying crowd pleaser: beer. There will be beer stations across the park.
There's nothing better than seeing dozens of amazing street food trucks scattered across a 28-acre park. Chefs will be serving up dishes like Texas Brisket Sandwiches, Butter Chicken, Portobello Burgers, Fish Tacos, Churros, Eggplant Parmigiana, Funnel Cakes and more. There are just so many options... which means there is something for everybody!
The park is also a nature lover's paradise! Woodbine Park's natural ecosystem, which includes a pond and boardwalk cutting through long grass and bushes, are home to many species of wildlife and birds. The park also has many wonderful attractions like children's playgrounds, a soccerfield, bandshell, climbing wall, and a small water park.
Proceeds from the festival will help support the SickKids Hospital Foundation. The support made from community events like this has helped SickKids advance in children's health research, as well as the purchasing of life-saving equipment for their operating rooms and clinics for young patients.
Toronto's Food Truck Festival admission is free, and will be held at Woodbine Park (1695 Queen St. E) from Friday, August 3rd to Monday, August 6th. Their operating hours are:
August 3: 5pm-10pm
