Foodie Fridays extended to next week
The Foodie Fridays run has been extended by two events.
The midday combination of local food trucks, street vendors, and live music will be held this Friday and next at Wood Innovation Square downtown.
The White Goose Bistro, Smokey J’s, North City Donair and Spicy Greens are confirmed for both days and the Frozen Paddle will be serving ice cream at the park on Sept. 20. As it stands, the event has been more popular than ever, according to city hall.
Average daily attendance has been 563 people compared with 486 in 2018, and 425 in 2017.
“The extension of Foodie Fridays was driven by the participating food vendors simply not wanting the event to end for the season, and the numbers indicate that neither does the public,” said civic events coordinator Jen Rubadeau.
Food truck operators, restaurant operators, or licensed food vendors interested in participating can contact Rubadeau at 250-6147880 or [email protected]george.ca.
