The Greater Vancouver Food Truck Wars are returning this weekend

Mar 27 2023, 8:15 pm

Food truck season has officially arrived and one of our favourite events will be kicking things off this weekend.

Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival is bringing back its legendary Food Truck Wars from Friday, March 31 to Sunday, April 2 at the Langley Campus of Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU).

The three-day event pits some of Metro Vancouver’s best food trucks against each other for a battle of the best, and diners will want to save room for the extensive lineup.

The event will feature over 45 food trucks every single day, which will be competing for several trophies and “best of” titles.

This year, several categories will be returning, as well as two new ones:

  • Best Between the Buns
  • Best Fusion
  • Best International
  • Best Plant-Based
  • Best Meat Sweats
  • Best Sweet Treat

New this year:

  • Best In Show! (Best Taste, Customer Service, Presentation, And Design)
  • Best Bang for your Buck
