Food Cart Fest starts Saturday in Surrey

SURREY – The much anticipated Food Cart Fest in Surrey is finally taking off Saturday (Aug. 2) after being pushed back a month from its expected launch date.


The event, which was originally slated to take place at Surrey’s new city hall plaza every Saturday over the summer, has been moved to Holland Park and will run for four weeks beginning Aug. 2 with food trucks on a rotating basis.


"We were just trying to figure out what the best spot is to do it in," said Daniel Fazio of Arrival Agency, the company responsible for hosting Vancouver’s popular Food Cart Fest as well as Vancouver’s annual arts and music festival Khatsalano.


"With the Food Cart Fest, it’s not just about eating, it’s about community and it’s about coming together in a space where you can hang out and enjoy company. We really, really loved Holland Park so we kept pushing the city to do something there."


Fazio said the Food Cart Fest could better utilize Holland Park than Surrey’s new city hall plaza as the building is closed on Saturdays with lesser foot traffic than the park.


Surrey’s Food Cart Fest kicks off at 12 p.m. and runs until 5 p.m. Admission to the event is free for the remainder of the summer.
