Foodtruck Wars Street Festival returns to Riversdale!
The 5th Annual Foodtruck Wars Street Festival is a family and pet friendly festival scheduled for July 26, 27, and 28, 2019. We are excited to announce that the Foodtruck Wars Street Festival will be held on 20th Street West between Avenue C and Avenue F. Our great line-up of food trucks, food trailers, and food booths will offer a wide variety of food, dessert, and beverage choices throughout the festival.
The Riversdale Business District has experienced a real makeover in the past few years. We hope that while you are attending our festival you will also visit the many businesses located on and around 20th Street. We know that a number of the area businesses will be featuring Foodtruck Wars Street Festival in-store specials!
A highlight of the festival is the Foodtruck Wars Flavour Challenge. This event is a taste testing competition, with competing food vendors entering their favourite dessert, beverage, and entree items to be judged by our food loving panel of judges. Come and see which food vendor wins the bragging rights Foodtruck Wars Flavour Champion for the 2019 season.
Other fan favourite events and features returning this year include: Hot Dog Havoc, Saskatoon’s only hot dog eating contest, Pie Me! pie eating contest, Beer Gardens, Bartari’s Video Game Lounge, a Street Vendors market, Strongman Power Lifting competitions, and buskers.
We will have an expanded covered seating area with tables, pet watering stations, and hand washing stations.
An important segment of our free entertainment will include a number of cultural dances and customs. We want to highlight the cultural diversities that make up the Riversdale community district.
We would like to also extend a huge thank you to the Roxy Theatre and the Riversdale Business Improvement District for the use of their parking lots for placement of: beer gardens, entertainment stage, and table seating. And of course, thank you to the City of Saskatoon for allowing street closures, which ultimately accommodates our festival site.
There are three other Riversdale partners that have joined us to help grow this festival, and at the same time help to promote and enhance the Riversdale area: Bartari Video Game Bar & Restaurant, North Star Trophies, and the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market.
Foodtruck Wars Festival Corporation is a non-profit organization partnering with the Riversdale Business Improvement District (RBID) to produce the annual Foodtruck Wars Street Festival. Proceeds from the festival will be used to enhance the Riversdale Cultural Community.
