Check out all the vendors coming to Foodstock festival next month
Delicious eats, cold drinks, and live music in the sun. Now that’s a perfect way to kick off summer.
Greater Vancouver Food Bank’s Foodstock 2023 is taking over Swangard Stadium on Sunday, June 18 for its annual fundraising event, and we’ve got the lowdown on all the great vendors coming for the festivities.
Of course, we can’t forget the music festival, which will be headlined by Juno Award winners Said the Whale. So there’s plenty for attendees to enjoy.
The 19+ event will be serving refreshing beverages from a variety of local faves, including Dageraad Brewing, Kits Beach Beer Company, Luppolo Brewing, Pacific Breeze Winery, Taylight Brewing, Twin Sails Brewing, and Dead Frog Brewery.
Food trucks on-site to sate your appetite include mouth-watering Mexican dishes by Ay! Mamacita, sizzling eats by Burgerholic and Mr. Tube Steak, and cool treats by Crema Ice Cream.
Bring your thirst and your appetite because 50% of all beverage sales proceeds and 10% of all food and marketplace sales will be donated to the GVFB.
Foodstock will also be hosting a marketplace throughout the day, with vendors including:
- A Healthy Beginning
- Arbutus Ridge Farm and Kennel
- Eunoia Naturale Wellness Inc.
- Hail Claytan
- Iron Mountain Ventures
- Liberum Studio
- Mata Home
- Shoebox Art

The lineup of performers onstage is just as exciting. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair and get ready to enjoy performances by Said The Whale, Fake Shark, Generous Thieves, Savannah Read, and Dani Camacho.
Knotty Games will also be bringing giant Jenga, corn hole, giant Connect Four, ladder golf, and Yardzee to the party.
Foodstock tickets include one standard-sized beverage (12oz beer and mixed liquor, 5 oz wine), with additional beverage tickets available for purchase on-site.
