YVR FOOD FEST Consistently named one of the city’s top food events by attendees and critics alike, the weekend-long celebration of food culture in Vancouver and beyond is now in its seventh year. For our 2018 edition, expect to enjoy local and international culinary talent collaborating on dinners, a giant outdoor brunch, and a Canada Day BBQ with live music. This is all in addition to Food For Thought, a food-centric TED Talks-style speaker series, and the festival’s flagship event the Street Food Showdown, a gathering of the city's top food carts, restaurants, and breweries. In addition to our annual festival we produce other great food events throughout the year such as our the Gather Dinner Series, seasonal food market such as Market Mexico, and more. Please check out our calendar to find out what delicious event is happening next.
