Foodie Fri­days are back. The city has built up its ap­petite for the sum­mer culi­nary event each week, where some of the best food ven­dors in Prince Ge­orge come to­gether to en­liven lunchtime.

“The City of Prince Ge­orge is again invit­ing food trucks, side­walk ven­dors, and hun­gry res­i­dents to come down­town for Foodie Fri­days,” said city hall spokesman Michael Kel­lett. “The award-win­ning and pop­u­lar pro­gram, which al­lows li­censed side­walk and mo­bile ven­dors to sell their pre­pared food on Fri­days dur­ing the sum­mer, will be held once again at Canada Games Plaza in front of the Prince Ge­orge Con­fer­ence & Civic Cen­tre.”

Foodie Fri­days will be held each Fri­day from July 19 to Sept. 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Last year, there were more than 5,000 vis­its to the event, which will again fea­ture live mu­sic through the lunch hour.

“The idea was first brought to the at­ten­tion of City staff by lo­cal busi­nesses wish­ing to add a new di­men­sion to the City’s down­town to com­ple­ment our al­ready fan­tas­tic res­tau­rants and cafés,” said Jen Rubadeau, civic events co­or­di­na­tor. “Foodie Fri­days helps to make use of our fan­tas­tic down­town out­door venues, and give the thou­sands of peo­ple who work in the area, as well as res­i­dents and tourists, a pleas­ant, so­cial, out­door place to go for a ca­sual lunch.”

Rubadeau en­cour­aged any food truck op­er­a­tors, restau­rant op­er­a­tors, or li­censed food ven­dors who are in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing in Foodie Fri­days to con­tact her at 250-614-7880 or [email protected] prince­ge­orge.ca.
