The City of New Westminster is closing the street to accommodate 15 to 20 food trucks, among the confirmed so far are Guanaco Truck, Casalinga Carts, Beljam’s Waffles, Aussie Pie Guy, Holy Perogy, JJ’s Trucketeria and Kaboom Box, with many more to come.
“It’s time Downtown New West joined the culinary convoy and Columbia Street makes an ideal venue”, says Executive Director of the Downtown New West BIA, Kendra Johnston, “With two Skytrain stations, great pubs, and ample street space, we’ll be able to accommodate thousands of festival goers”.
Robert Fung of Trapp + Holbrook commented, “Downtown New West continues to catch people’s attention as a great urban neighbourhood and dynamic place to live. There’s a strong sense of community here that is filled with the energy that comes from people sharing the knowledge that they are part of something special. The Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest is an amazing testimony to how progressive this town is, and how ready it is to blow the culinary and entrepreneurial doors off! Salient is really excited to be a part of this event and, with Trapp+Holbrook, to be part of the Columbia Street evolution. If you don’t already live here, get used to coming to Downtown New West for great food and a great sense of belonging. This event is a wonderful example of the atmosphere and excitement people can expect in Downtown New West.”
