In previous years the event has been on a Saturday in September at Haney Plaza. In 2019, however, it takes place along 224th Street near the Memorial Peace Park on Sunday June 16th.
Food Truck Fest in 2019
The Maple Ridge Food Truck Festival is one in a series of food truck events put on by the Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival in the Lower Mainland.
The Maple Ridge event has taken place around the third weekend in September at Haney Plaza at 22255 Dewdney Trunk Road in recent years. As of 2019, however, it has a new venue in an earlier month.
In 2019 the Maple Ridge Food Truck Festival takes place along 224th Street between Dewdney Trunk Road and the Lougheed Highway from 11:00 am until 6:00 pm on Sunday June 16th (which is the Father’s Day Sunday). Similar to previous years, the event features over 20 food trucks serving everything from macaroni to Thai food to Italian.
Entertainment at the Maple Ridge event in 2019 features music with the Coalmont Band and performances by stunt magician Wes Barker. Paw Patrol characters are also scheduled to be on site and available for photo opportunities with children.
Note: Performance details are subject to change.
About the Food Truck Festival
At the Food Truck Festival in Maple Ridge, in addition to the food trucks, there is a small artisan market and live music, as well as kid-friendly activities including face painting.
In previous years about a dozen or so artisan and other product vendors have participated in the event. In 2019 the event promises to be bigger than ever though. Also, whereas in past years it has taken place in a parking lot, this year it’ll be more of a street party and run for a couple of blocks in the heart of downtown.
Admission to the event is free and food truck meals cost about $10 plus or minus.
What to do in the Area
Maple Ridge is a nice community with a number of great parks in the region.
Less than a 10-minute drive east of downtown Maple Ridge is Kanaka Creek Regional Park which is located in the 23200 block of River Road just off the Lougheed Highway. It’s a great park to walk around and it offers 10 km of hiking trails, 7 km of biking trails and 5 km of horseback-riding trails. Dogs on leash are also welcome.
Another fabulous park to check out in the Maple Ridge area is Golden Ears Provincial Park which is about a 20-minute or 16-km drive from downtown and the Maple Ridge Food Truck Festival venue. The park is home to Alouette Lake which has a beautiful beach as well as hiking, boating, camping and fishing opportunities.
