Street Food City Returns to Dine Out Vancouver Festival – January 23 – 29, 2017


There are no reservations available or required – so Vancouverites will want to keep their umbrellas close at hand in order to take spontaneous advantage of the most informal component of the Dine Out Vancouver Festival, Street Food City. The sixth annual “food truck pod,” a vibrant pop-up starring local food trucks, will run from January 23 – 29. This year, they’ll be grouped along Howe Street, between Georgia and Smithe Streets. Food carts, tables and seating will be available on the 800 Robson Street Plaza.

Presented by Tourism Vancouver, StreetFood Vancouver Society and the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA), this popular event features something for every craving – from crisp lumpia (spring rolls) from Fliptop Filipino Fusion to a rib-sticking serving of beef bourguignon from C’est Si Bon to a crunchy Sicilian pastry filled with cream from Cannoli King, and much more. Whether it’s a fully loaded hot dog from Dougie Luv, a wood-fired sandwich from Via Tevere Neapolitan Express, or spicy jerk chicken from The Reef Runner, guests are sure to leave Street Food City satisfied.

More than 25 food trucks will rotate throughout the week-long festival, and will be open for business from 11am – 3pm, Monday to Friday, and from 11am – 5pm, Saturday and Sunday.

“This is a fantastic way to explore the local food truck scene, with lots of choices in one spot,” says Suzanne Poudrier of StreetFood Vancouver Society. “Whether you wander over between viewing exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery, pop by in the afternoon following a yoga class, or make this your workday lunch destination daily throughout the festival, you won’t have to repeat any food choice. The variety is plentiful, and the price point is pretty great too.”

Partial proceeds from Street Food City’s Dine Out Vancouver specials will be donated to A Loving Spoonful, a volunteer-driven, non-partisan society that provides free, nutritious meals to people living with HIV/AIDS in Metro Vancouver.

“Dine Out Vancouver Festival, which is the largest food and drink event in Canada, offers all kinds of fantastic food experiences at some 280 restaurants. Street Food City is one aspect that people eagerly anticipate each year,” says Lucas Pavan, Dine Out Vancouver Festival Coordinator. “It can be squeezed quite easily into a downtown lunch hour but also serves as a real daytime destination for those who don’t work downtown. Every year, Dine Out Vancouver reminds us that this is truly a foodie city, and it broadens our taste buds to all kinds of talented cooks, restaurateurs, bartenders and event organizers. Without question, Dine Out offers a culinary adventure for everyone.”
