CFTF is conscious of the varying needs of our attendees and each of our festival sites are chosen and built with accessibility as a main consideration. Our festivals will offer accessible washrooms, a wheel-trans drop-off and pick-up location, accessible picnic benches for those using wheelchairs. It is important to note that the picnic benches will be positioned close to the front of the stage, so that anyone using that space can clearly see the stage from a seated position. The point of sale for the bar, as well as the bar itself will be 3ft high, ensuring that service is accessible. If someone is unable to travel to the bar due to mobility issues, wait staff will bring food and drinks to anyone that requests this service. The power company will run power lines around the perimeter of the festival, however in circumstances where power lines cross pedestrian walkways, wheelchair friendly mats are used, ensuring unobstructed enjoyment for all audiences.
Well-behaved and leashed pets are welcome at CFTF events.
Unfortunately pets will not be permitted at the Pickering Food Truck Festival due to a City of Pickering regulation.

Is there a charity benefactor?
SickKids Foundation has been Canadian Food Truck Festivals charitable partner since the organization’s inception in 2013. To date, more than $186,000 in donations have been raised at the festivals entrances for the hospital’s lifesaving programs.
The funds raised through this event will be allocated to the Possibilities Fund, supporting the highest priority needs at SickKids. Because of the support SickKids receives from this event and community initiatives like it, important advances have been made in child health research, new life-saving medical equipment has been purchased for their clinics and operating rooms and their young patients continue to receive the best care that science, technology, and compassion have to offer – here in Toronto and around the world.
