WINNIPEG — About 70,000 people ventured downtown this weekend to take in the seventh annual ManyFest.
The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ event packed several festivals into one large, three-day spectacular along Broadway and Memorial Boulevard. (The weather also cooperated — a huge bonus!)
Of the many events to take in, Food Truck Wars was one of the big draws. More than 40 trucks lined the streets and competed for votes — of which 2,000 were cast. Vendors mastered their delicious creations for visitors and the hungry media judges.
The winners are…
- Most Original – Wiggle Chips
- Best Presentation – BDI: Bridge Drive-In
- Best Bang for Your Buck – The Churro Stop
- People’s Choice: Kyu Grill (192 votes)
Second place runner up in the People’s Choice category was The Red Ember (173) and third place The Churro Stop (157).
“The amount of food trucks we see downtown during the summer months has increased significantly over the past few years,” said Stefano Grande, CEO of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ.
“Food trucks have a tendency of bringing the community together for a unique experience and that is exactly what happens during ManyFest!”
