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 made 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 most years. The Richmond Community Block Party featured 14 or more food trucks on site on each of its three days in 2022. There was also a market with a carefully selected lineup of local vendors. Guests were able to shop comfortably knowing that all purchases at the event supported small local businesses. Another highlight of the event is always the live entertainment. Performances at the block parties help provide a lively atmosphere.
Details about the Richmond event in 2023 are to be confirmed. Other similar events happening in 2023 are in Chilliwack (April 29th & 30th), Coquitlam (May 13th & 14th) and Surrey (June 3rd & 4th). On June 10th there is also Langley Community Day.
