Taking place from January 15 to January 23, the event, now in its tenth year, is part of the broad slate of fun programming for Dine Out Vancouver.

The trucks will rotate, so you'll find a different assortment of global fare and comfort eats onsite every day of the week-long event.

While you can definitely grab your food truck nosh to go, Street Food City will also boast a tented seating area with tables for an al fresco eating experience.
