Burnaby Block Party in 2023

The Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival is a series of events in the Lower Mainland. The food truck-themed series included a set of Community Block Party events in the spring and summer of 2023. One of these was the Burnaby Block Party in April.

The Burnaby Block Party was an outdoor event for all ages. It featured food trucks, live entertainment, an artisan market and other family-friendly activities. It was completely free to attend.

At the event were over 20 food trucks and lots of people enjoying a wide variety of tasty cuisine. There were all kinds of food to enjoy, including several vegan and vegetarian options.

The Burnaby Block Party happened rain or shine. It was also a pet-friendly event. There was an artisan market on site with over a dozen vendors, including some that sold pet products, so there were likely a few dogs walking around on leashes. Other activities in 2023 included Jenga, ladder ball, and other fun games.

Similar events in the 2023 series include the Coquitlam Block Party in mid-May. There are also block parties in both Surrey and Mission in June. That same month in 2023, on the Father’s Day Weekend of June 16th to 18th, there is also the Maple Ridge Feast-of-Ales event which features both food trucks and craft beer breweries.
