There are many things that will attract you to the Richmond World Festival, going down on August 31 and September 1 this year at Minoru Park and Richmond Cultural Centre Plaza.
It may be the epic performances by over 75 artists on nine stages – including headliners Lights and Magic! – the digital carnival, or perhaps it’s the artisan marketplace that will attract you to this event, for us, it’s definitely going to be the food.

We’ll be heading to Richmond these dates 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, Jamaican Mi Juicy, Mr Bannock, Reel Mac And Cheese, and Rocky Point Ice Cream 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.
You can go around the world with the food from this FEASTival, so don’t miss your chance to live it up.
