Taste Your Way Around the Trail – The Cabot Truck Food Truck Rally Returns this Weekend

Foodies and adventure seekers, mark your calendars! Hit the road this fall and enjoy some great eats along the way. Destination Cape Breton, with the support of Parks Canada and the Province of Nova Scotia, is once again presenting the Cabot Trail Food Truck Rally on October 21 and 22, 2023. The hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. 

The food trucks will be placed at various locations around the Cabot Trail to give people time to digest their offerings before stopping at the next food truck location. The idea is to grab a bite, take a hike and enjoy the spectacular fall colours.

“The Cabot Trail Food Truck Rally is not just a food festival; it’s an experience that celebrates the beauty of our region and the diverse culinary talents of our food truck vendors,” says Destination Cape Breton CEO Terry Smith. “We can’t wait to welcome everyone to this fun and tasty event.”
