2018 Foodtruck Wars Street Festival presented by Bartari set to Invade Riversdale!
The 4th Annual Foodtruck Wars Street Festival is a family oriented festival scheduled for July 27-29, 2018. We are excited to announce that the Bartari’s Foodtruck Wars Street Festival will be held on 20th Street West between Avenue C and Avenue F. Our great line-up of food trucks, trailers, and booths will offer a wide variety of food choices throughout the festival.
The Riversdale Business District has experienced a real makeover in the past few years. We hope that while you are attending our festival you will also visit the many businesses located on and around 20th Street. We know that a number of the area businesses will be featuring Foodtruck Wars Street Festival in-store specials!
A highlight of the festival is the SIGA’s Foodtruck Wars Flavour Challenge. This event is a taste testing competition, with competing food vendors entering their favourite dessert, beverage, and entree items to be judged by our food loving panel of judges. Come and see which food vendor wins the bragging rights as SIGA’s Foodtruck Wars Flavour Champion for the 2018 season.
Other fan favourite events and features returning this year include: SIGA’S Hot Dog Havoc, Saskatoon’s only hot dog eating contest, Pie Eating contest presented by 98Cool FM, Beer Gardens, and Bartari’s Video Game Lounge!
New to the festival will be: a Street Vendors market, a free Bike Parking Station, Strongman Power Lifting Demonstrations, and the Dakota Dunes Casino Entertainment Circle. There will also be two new exciting competitions: The Ultimate Hamburger Championship (UHC) and Saskatchewan’s Got Talent presented by 92.9 The Bull FM with a guaranteed $1000.00 first prize award!
An important segment of our free entertainment will include a number of cultural dances and customs. We want to highlight the cultural diversities that make up the Riversdale community district.
We are pleased to announce that Affinity Credit Union has partnered with Bartari’s Foodtruck Wars Street Festival to make the festival as environmentally sustainable as possible. This sponsorship is a perfect fit as our festival supports Affinity’s vision to build a better world and that means a greener world. In addition to being the festival’s zero waste sponsor, Affinity is also proud to be sponsoring the Main Entertainment Stage as well as the Saskatoon Cycles Bike Valet, a free bike parking service for festival visitors!
Other major corporate sponsors we are ecstatic to have as festival partners are: Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA), Dakota Dunes Casino, CTV, CJWW 600 AM, 98Cool FM, and 92.9 The Bull FM.
We would like to also extend a huge thank you to the Roxy Theatre, O’Brians Automotive, and the Riversdale Business Improvement District for the use of their parking lots for placement of: Beer Gardens, O’Brians Food Zone, and the Affinity Credit Union Main Stage. And of course, thank you to the City of Saskatoon for allowing street closures, which ultimately accommodates our festival site.
There are three other Riversdale partners that have joined us to help grow this festival, and at the same time help to promote and enhance the Riversdale area: Bartari Video Game Bar & Restaurant, North Star Trophies, and the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market.
Foodtruck Wars Festival Corporation is a non-profit organization partnering with the Riversdale Business Improvement District (RBID) to produce the annual Foodtruck Wars Street Festival. Proceeds from the festival will be used to enhance the Riversdale Cultural Community.
