Foodie Fridays returns to city hall this summer

Foodie Fridays are back. The city has built up its appetite for the summer culinary event each week, where some of the best food vendors in Prince George come together to enliven lunchtime.

"The City of Prince George is again inviting food trucks, sidewalk vendors, and hungry residents to come downtown for Foodie Fridays," said city hall spokesman Michael Kellett. "The award-winning and popular program, which allows licensed sidewalk and mobile vendors to sell their prepared food on Fridays during the summer, will be held once again at Canada Games Plaza in front of the Prince George Conference & Civic Centre."

Foodie Fridays will be held each Friday from July 19 to Sept. 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Last year, there were more than 5,000 visits to the event, which will again feature live music through the lunch hour.

"The idea was first brought to the attention of City staff by local businesses wishing to add a new dimension to the City's downtown to complement our already fantastic restaurants and cafs," said Jen Rubadeau, civic events coordinator. "Foodie Fridays helps to make use of our fantastic downtown outdoor venues, and give the thousands of people who work in the area, as well as residents and tourists, a pleasant, social, outdoor place to go for a casual lunch."

Rubadeau encouraged any food truck operators, restaurant operators, or licensed food vendors who are interested in participating in Foodie Fridays to contact her at 250-614-7880 or
