Food Truck Wars in Langley

The Lower Mainland’s first Food Truck Wars event was in Cloverdale last year and it was awesome! This year’s event promises to be just as good, if not better!

In 2023 Food Truck Wars happens at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Langley on March 31st to April 2nd. If you like beer, artisan vendors and food, especially food truck food, you won’t want to miss this!

Food Truck Wars features over 40 food trucks on each of the three days. There is also live music and roaming entertainment, a beer garden and market vendors. It’s a family-friendly event and a competition between food vendors.

The Competition

The event is called Food Truck Wars because it’s a competition between the different food vendors to see which is the public’s favourite.

Competition categories include Best Fusion, Best International, Best Plant-Based, Best Meat Sweats and Best Sweet Treat. There is also Best Between The Buns (which includes hot dogs, hamburgers and that sort of thing). New for 2023 there is also Best In Show (which factors in best taste, customer service, presentation and design) and Best Bang For your Buck.
