Richmond Food Truck Festival and Party
The Community Block Party Series is a fun and tasty set of events presented by the Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival. The block parties take place in different locations across the Lower Mainland. In 2022, the event makes its way to Richmond for three days at the end of April and beginning of May.
There are several things to do at each of the block party events. The Richmond Community Block Party features 14 or more food trucks on site on each of its three days. There’s also a market with a carefully selected lineup of local vendors. Guests can shop comfortably knowing that all purchases at the event support small local businesses. Another highlight of the event is the live entertainment. Performances at the block parties help provide a lively atmosphere.
In addition to the Community Block Party in Richmond, other similar events in 2022 are in Surrey (April 8th, 9th & 10th), Coquitlam (May 7th & 8th) and Chilliwack (June 4th & 5th). On June 18th there is also Langley Community Day.
