Huge food truck festival coming to Concord's New Year's Eve Vancouver fireworks

Dec 23 2017, 9:11 am

The biggest food truck festival this winter season will be coming to Canada Place Way in downtown Vancouver during Concord’s New Year’s Eve fireworks celebration.

About 20 of the city’s top food trucks will turn the street into a vibrant street food market when revellers descend on the area for Vancouver’s free, official NYE countdown party – the largest NYE celebration in Canada.

Revellers are invited to come hungry to try dishes from food trucks such as Taco Kwon Do, Bobby’s South Asian Foods, Jamaica Mi Juice, B&B’s delicious crepes, White Spot Triple O’s, Mini Donuts, and Melt Town’s amazing grilled cheese or the mac & cheese specials.

Other festival favourites include funnel cakes, donairs, fish and chips, corn dogs, kettle corn, and pulled pork in a variety of mouth-watering servings.

In addition to the food truck festival, revellers can expect plenty of other entertainment and activities, such as roaming street performers and live music from the 102.7 The PEAK Main Stage and the Coast Capital Savings Stage.

And of course, there will also be the spectacular fireworks shows launched from a barge in Coal Harbour – a five-minute-long Family Fireworks show at 9 pm and an intense finale for the Midnight Countdown Fireworks.

For those looking for an even better way to ring in 2018 and watch the fireworks, there will be a premium indoor party – with balloon drops, DJ FlipOut, and other performers – held inside the West Building of the Vancouver Convention Centre. The indoor party will be Vancouver’s largest indoor NYE party, and the only indoor event with a view of the fireworks.
