We’ll be heading to Richmond come September to devour some eats from the whopping 50+ food trucks at the celebration – formally called the FEASTival of Flavours.
The trucks will offer a crazy array of cuisine from a variety of different cultures, and the selection includes local faves like Arturo’s To Go, BelJam’s Waffles, Big Red’s Poutine, Cannoli King, Melt City Grilled Cheese, Chickpea, Curry Express, D Original Sausage House, Didi’s Greek, and Dim Sum Express to name a few.
The multicultural festival will attract thousands of people over the Labor Day long weekend looking to take part in watching the live music, cultural performances, dance troupes, buskers, and chefs.
