A new summer event will bring local bands, breweries, and food trucks together under the sun for an afternoon of fun all for a great cause.
The first annual Foodstock will take place June 26 at Burnaby's Swangard Stadium.
The new ticketed 19+ event is a fundraiser for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank (GVFB) and attendees are urged to bring a picnic blanket or lawn chairs to make the most of the day. Your admission gets you one drink ticket, with more available on-site for purchase; 50 per cent of the proceeds from all beverage sales will be donated to the GVFB. Meanwhile, 10 per cent of all food sales will be donated to the GVFB.
