Ft. Langley 1st Annual Food Truck Festival

this picture does not show the crazy!

A few weekends ago, Ft. Langley celebrated the 1st Annual Food Truck Festival, and we decided to go and see what the hubbub was about. Hubbub, indeed, it was nuts! So many of the food trucks--in a very tight spot with hundreds of people--sold completely out around the half-way point in the day, and many had wait times that a normal restaraunt would be embarrassed by. 

The day was perfect for it, and I think they'll do it again, but there were a lot of unhappy festival goers on facebook, letting the venue know that the spot was way too tight, not enough vendors, and a space with shade was needed. I was very surprised by a 35 minute wait for a simple vegan burrito, but I wasn't disappointed by the great flavor of the GYPSY trunk vegan food. It was a $12 burrito, so, there's that (ouch!) but the taste was very good, and I'd buy from them again, when I didn't have to share it...

In all, I would say next year if we decide to go (Stefan is not usually impressed with food truck food, I just think it's fun to try something new), I'd say we will go super early to try to beat the crowds and our hunger, and wait times. I'm sure it was a great money-maker for the town, and the area was completely packed. It definitely attracked a lot of business throughout, but they really need a better space for it next year. First time of anything sometimes is wonky, I'm sure they'll get the kinks out by next year!

Thanks dear for these details regarding this Ft. Langley 1st Annual Food Truck Festival. The event sounds fantastic. I’ve attended various food fests but never been to any food truck event. If there is such upcoming food holiday party in Florida then please let me know dear!
