York Region will be home to a massive family-friendly festival this Summer
A family-friendly event like no other will hold its inaugural festival this summer, complete with gourmet food trucks, live music, interactive games and performances by global attractions including Max and Ruby and Splash n’ Boots.
Fun Food Fest will kick off its first year at the Historic Woodbridge Fair Grounds on Friday July 13th, and continue throughout the entire weekend until Sunday July 15th.
While the performances and unique activations will certainly keep the children busy, the real show stopper will be the 30 gourmet food trucks offering up delicious food from various cuisines around the world tapping into a fleet of local and international talent.
The weekend long festival will be serving up delicious eats from Kitchen Empire TO, New Gen Foods, Gourmet Gringos, Island Noodles, Gastro Grub, Kanga Meat Pies, Heaven Dreams Ice Cream and All Fired Up, to name a few.
“This festival has been a passion project for me for many years,” said Massimo Grisafi, creator and organizer of Fun Food Fest. “There are so many fantastic events downtown Toronto, but as a resident of Vaughan, I know that there is so much opportunity to create more world-class festivals here that will appeal to a wide range of audiences including families, couples, friends and, of course, food and drink enthusiasts.”
The event is slated to include an award winning escape room, oversized bouncy castles, comedians, buskers, clowns, magic shows and a diverse mix of live entertainment throughout the weekend. Organizers say that this first year will serve as the basis to create new ideas and activations for future festivals including potential for a foodie mini-event series, cooking demonstrations, interactive games, competitions and local artist installations.
“The primary goal for our very first festival was to focus on creating an informal atmosphere with world-class food at affordable prices alongside some fantastic entertainment. I think we will definitely achieve that and have a great foundation for our future festivals,” said Grisafi.
Admission to the event is only $10.00 and children under 12 months will be free. A portion of the proceeds from the festival will be donated to Sick Kids Hospital.
“We hope that everyone comes to check us out! There will be something for everyone and it will make for a great family day out”
