 VIEx Presents "A Taste of The Fair Food Truck Festival"

The Vancouver Island Exhibition (VIEx) will hold a special hybrid event on what is normally considered Fair Weekend. Some of your favorite activities as virtual events mixed with a few in person...

“A Taste of The Fair” – Food Truck Festival is a drive through. Get a taste of the fair on August 22nd & 23rd at the Beban Park Fairgrounds. Although we can not gather like we normally would the Vancouver Island Exhibition is striving to bring you as many elements of the fair that they safely can do during these unprecedented times and nothing says the fair like food trucks!

The hours of operation will be: Saturday August 22, 2020 – 11:00am to 6:00pm Sunday August 23, 2020 – 11:00am to 5:00pm We look forward to seeing you all there.

Don't forget to make sure you tune into the Dance Party after your food truck experience and the many virtual activities online through the weekend! Scroll down this page for links to each activity and more information.
