Food Trucks - Mmmm good!!

Funny thing about people - they like to have fabulous food when they go to fabulous festivals. So, that's what we offer - great food from some great food trucks! Our Food Trucks are selected by committee and sent invitations to participate. We are very pleased to have found two "mmm good" local food trucks: Grillz Weenie Wagon and The Mini Donut Factory. Hot dogs, tornadoes, poutine, and lots of special summer treats!

Grillz Weenie Wagon is home of the good old fashioned gourmet hotdog with all the trimmings. Based out of Carstairs, Alberta, the Mini Donut Factory offers cotton candy, milkshakes, snow cones, popcorn, and all the other great items foodies love!

Supporting arts, culture & heritage in Carstairs, Cremona, Didsbury, Olds, Sundre and the surrounding Central Alberta communities between Red Deer and Calgary.
