The City of Yellowknife is hosting a lottery for food truck vendors interested in having a designated parking spot downtown during the upcoming food truck season.

After consulting with food vendors that operated in the city’s downtown, a lottery system was implemented in 2017. Last summer three food vendors applied for, and received, designated parking spots within Yellowknife’s downtown. The ability to park at a constant location was well-received by both the vendors and their customers.

Food truck operators wishing to participate in the lottery must have their business license and all related paperwork completed and submitted to the City no later than May 8, 2018. The lottery draw takes place on May 15, 2018.

A map indicating available parking spots and restrictions for downtown food vendors, and food vending permit information can be found on the City’s website (under Food Vending Permit).
