Food Truck

CN Centre · Friday, June 10, 1 pm to 8 pm · Saturday, June 11, 10 am to 6 pm · Sunday, June 12, 10 am to 4 pm


It's been a busy few weeks.

For one, some of us were committed to the fantastic Northern FanCon, but as it falls away from our rearview, we can start thinking forward to the BC Gourmet Arts Festival.

To that end, we are finally locking down the daily events to look forward to.

We've already established the Community Appreciation Barbeque on Friday. On Saturday, we will be featuring both the Great Canadian Chili Cook-Off and Junk-In-The-Trunk. However, Sunday was the real challenge, and personally, I believe it measures up.

Firstly, we will be showcasing an expanded selection of vendors from the local Farmers' Market. Intermixed with these additional tables will be prime examples from the local Prince George Import & Domestic Car Club (more to follow on that).

The biggest challenge was outlining the teased food competition, which we can finally reveal.


Oh, sorry…forgot the subtitle…



On the day, patrons are invited to purchase a pass to sample the unique offerings presented by each competing food truck. This pass also includes a marble. That marble is super special—it's the voting marble.

The rules are simple. Try all the dishes (canapes) the trucks are submitting for the competition and drop your marble in the bucket of the food truck you like the most. It's that simple. At the end of the competition, each bucket's contents are weighed to determine the winner. There will even be a trophy (a nice one) we hope the winner will proudly display somewhere for all future customers to see.

Like a particular iron-themed competition, each food truck must incorporate the not-so-secret ingredient, which in this case will be (believe or not) bacon. And these are not some cheap, fatty factory strips but high-quality gourmet cuts from local sponsor Birch & Boar. What each truck accomplishes with its supply is up to them as long as the ingredient is employed somehow.

The Top Truck Taste Challenge is a Sunday-only event, and I believe it's about time we find out which food truck’s cuisine reigns supreme. 

I won't get sued for saying that, will I?
