Anyone else find it hard to find the perfect Father’s Day gift? How many ties or tools can you really buy for him? We’ve done the whole DIY your own gift; buy him golfing lessons; stock up his book collection with Chapter’s suggestions. Seriously, we’ve done it all. If you’re in the same boat and are currently Googling “what to buy my dad for Father’s Day,” exit the tab, we’ve got you covered for the best Father’s Day gift yet.

Win #1 Kid of the Year and take your Dad (and your whole fam) to Food Truck Frenzy on June 17th hosted by YYC Food Trucks. Not only will you get to spend quality bonding time with your Pops, you can enjoy the sunshine while chowing down on Calgary’s best food truck fare. Bring your lawn chairs, picnic blankets and furry friends and come spend the weekend with us. Did we mention there are beer gardens? Take the whole afternoon to catch up with Dad, meet new friends and spend time in the community.

As you decide what food truck to try first (trust us, it’s a hard decision) checkout the pop-up village by Market Collective and shop your favourite local brands and makers. If you still need to get your Dad a gift, this is the perfect spot to find something unique and local. Wander on over to the stage where there will be live entertainment all weekend long including CKS, The Lovebullies, Rondel Roberts, Maren Ord and our favourite local DJs. Rad food and killer tunes? We’re always down and we know Dad will love it too.

Father’s Day Weekend Food Truck Frenzy will take place on June 16th & 17th at Murdoch Park in Bridgeland from 11am-evening. It’s $5 to get in for the entire weekend and kids under 14 are free. Come for the food, stay for the fun weekend vibes. For more information, check out YYC Food Trucks on Facebook.
