Food Truck Rally April 21-22, 2016

KEEPING THE DREAM OF THIRD THURSDAYS ALIVE

April 21-22, 2016
4-10 PM
264 Leon Avenue

Awesome Okanagan is pretty excited to be part of another food truck rally…mostly because it’s just so exciting to see so many people in Kelowna come out of hibernation and enjoy each other’s company around a table with good food! Based on the vibe from the inaugural event last October and the first spring event in March, this secret recipe of good things coming together in the mixing pot of an open air parking-lot-patio makes strangers into fast friends; creating a much needed feeling of community in our downtown.

This is the second event of the monthly series called Third Thursdays. On the Third Thursday of every month, a wide variety of food trucks will serve great food from 4pm until 10pm.  After the March Launch Event the main request was to make it a larger event and include more food trucks. So the April event will be spread over 2 days with a different mix of trucks on each day. You asked for it – more food trucks!

The Leon Night Market and Awesome Okanagan have teamed up to present an even better event this month featuring Kelowna’s hottest food trucks serving up delectable delicacies which will pair nicely with the beer, wine, ciders, and spirits from the beverage garden. (19+)

The stellar line up of trucks continues to grow…a detailed announcement will be made the week of letting you know which night your favourite trucks will be there.
