Tasty Treats on Granville Street

If you are walking by the Vancouver Art Gallery this weekend, don't be surprised when your stomach starts to growl. But fear not, there will be street vendors on hand to serve up cultural creations from Taiwan. 

"This weekend, anyone passing by the Vancouver Art Gallery and the 600 and 700 block of Granville Street can experience a bit of Taiwanese life, including its food carts. That’s because the annual Telus TaiwanFest (running September 4 to 6) has taken to the streets. Previously held at the Plaza of Nations and the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Center, this year the festival is centered on Granville Street between Dunsmuir and Robson streets. The celebration extends to the Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza (facing West Georgia Street) and CBC Studio 700. Unlike last year at the Plaza of Nations, admission is free. (It’s a street party, after all.) That means you won’t need a ticket to access the culinary offerings." (The Straight)

So make sure to hit the streets with empty stomachs and open minds this weekend. Enjoy!
