Vancouver's first Brazilian food truck focusing on indigenous influences will also be one of the several food options at the festival featuring local Brazilian cuisine and food vendors. Confirmed mouth-watering options include Brazilian street food from Whatafood (voted one of the Richmond Night Market’s Top 10 Popular dishes!), and Coxinha by Boteco Brasil.
