Sponsor for the event Robert Fung, President of The Salient Group4, commented, Salient is really excited to be a part of this event and, with Trapp+Holbrook, to be part of the Columbia Street evolution. Downtown New West continues to draw people as a great urban neighbourhood and dynamic place to live. There s a strong sense of community here that is filled with energy from people sharing something special. The Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest is yet again a testimony to how progressive this town is, and how it has already blown the culinary and entrepreneurial doors off! Get used to coming to Downtown New West for great food and a great sense of belonging. If you haven t experienced it already, I invite you to come down and have a taste!

Your friends at Trapp+Holbrook5 will be in the middle of the action with a booth and special draw prizes (tbd) be sure to come say hi! In the meantime, visit the Trapp+Holbrook Presentation Centre located at 702 Columbia Street to get more info on this highly-anticipated event. We are open daily from 12-5pm except Fridays. See you on August 23rd!
