Popular Food Truck Festival Coming to Mississauga for the First Time Ever

If you love food truck festivals–and you should, because they’re a sign that summer is officially upon us–you might be happy to hear that a popular Toronto-born event is coming to Mississauga for the first time ever.

For the first time ever, Food Truck’N Friday will be at Celebration Square, and it will hit the area five times throughout the spring and summer seasons.

Each Friday that it takes place, the festival will feature a new lineup of Toronto’s best food trucks, plus family fun and other surprises. The multi-week week event will kick off on May 10 and run every few weeks from 12:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

For those who aren’t aware, Food Truck’N Friday has actually been gathering crowds east of the border for some time now.

“We’ve been doing this since 2015. I went old school in the beginning, we did 12×18 posters for the event and we went to every light post we could find in Etobicoke and we had 2,000 people come through the first event,” says founder Jason Bellissimo.

“I wanted to make food trucks a respectable and thriving aspect of the hospitality industry. I have a network of approx 60 or 70 food trucks now and I have a good working relationship with them. I’m supporting the industry in general.”

As far as vendors go, Bellissimo says attendees can always expect eight or more food trucks–lineups will be different each event–and several artisan and pop up vendors.

He says that vendors and trucks will be announced in the coming weeks.

The event will take place rain or shine, and is totally free to attend.
