“Last year’s FTFO witnessed over 5,000 attendees and we certainly did not anticipate such a high number of food lovers”, said Stev Baycetich, the producer behind the event. He continued, “We will be better prepared to comfortably accommodate and entertain every attendee. There will be 32 food trucks, compared to 21 who participated last year. In addition, a farmer’s market will allow attendees to go home with fresh food.”
He added, “Attendees have the chance to vote for the peoples’ favourite food truck. The winning truck will go home with the Golden Fork Trophy, which will inspire the food truck owners to create new and exciting food items for the festival-goers.”
