Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium will be rocking this summer with amazing live music and delicious food and drink. And it’s all to raise funds for an important local cause.

Greater Vancouver Food Bank’s Foodstock 2022, presented by 102.7 THE PEAK, is happening on Sunday, June 26.

The music festival features eight local bands and artists, lawn games, and plenty of choices for food and drink lovers to discover.

Bring a blanket or a lawn chair and get ready to enjoy the day on the Swangard Stadium field in support of the GVFB.

Foodstock will feature crowd-pleasing sets from Bend Sinister, Sleepy Gonzales, Generous Thieves, The Noodle Boys, Uncle Strut, Green Alderson, Madelyn Read, and Good Goin’.

Drink up because 50 percent of all beverage sales proceeds will be donated to the GVFB.

Bring your appetite to the fest because Foodstock is welcoming a number of popular food trucks to the event. Order your favourites from Beavertails, Kyu Grill, Shameless Buns, Wings, and Reel Mac n Cheese, and 10% of all food sales will be donated to the non-profit organization.
