After originally being scheduled for Burlington, the Night Market Toronto’s Halal Fest will be held in Oakville this weekend, instead.

According to a post from organizers on Instagram, a recent pushback on food trucks from downtown restaurants made them decide to head a little bit east.

The event will now be held Friday, June 3, to Sunday, June 5, at the Oakville GO Station, 214 Cross Ave.

“We know many of you around the Burlington area were very excited to have us,” said a spokesperson for Night Market Toronto. “We would like you to know we have been in touch with the City of Burlington in hopes to better understand how we can bring our inclusive event to your community next year.”

The free event will bring more than a dozen vendors, part of an eight-weekend, eight-city tour over the summer.

There will be no pork or alcohol served on any of the food trucks, in keeping with the halal theme, and if you have any other dietary restrictions, make sure you ask each vendor if they have suitable options.

Included among the vendors scheduled to be in attendance are:

  • Festival Fun Food
  • Gourmet Guys
  • Daddy Browns
  • The North Corner
  • Toro Grill
  • The Hungry Moon
  • Donia’s Donair
  • Heirloom Cheesecake
  • Rick’s Good Eats
  • The Mighty Cob
  • The Smoke Stop
  • Chaska
  • Leen’s Shop
  • Alaia Karak
  • Mustache Burger

The festival will be running from 3 p.m. to midnight on Friday, 2 p.m. to midnight on Saturday and 2 to 11 p.m. Sunday.
