What to Expect

The Mission Community Block Party is a family-friendly event. Expect to see lots of vendor stalls and people of all ages enjoying food from around 20 food trucks. There is food from a variety of different cultures to explore.

Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival events usually have a tented area with seating. This was likely the case in Mission (although exact details were to be confirmed). As the event is at a big park, people might bring their own blankets or lawn chairs and sit on the grass as well. The Mission Block Party also features live entertainment. There’s a beer garden for adults and a market with a variety of market vendors as well.

Food trucks at the event include favourites like the Corndog King, Cravings Kettle Corn, Guerilla Q, Reel Mac & Cheese, Street Dogs, Tin Lizzy and others. Around 18 artisan vendors are on-site on each of the two days. Some of them are the same on both days, but some of them are there for just one. Handmade products for sale likely include soaps, leather accessories, jams, baked goods, aromatherapy products and other interesting and unique things.
