We are seeking participation interest from ‘iconic’ Wellington food truck operators to collaborate in the Wellington Food Truck Rally activation from Saturday 19 – Sunday 27 August around the greater Wellington region.

Please note that this activity is DIFFERENT to the Wellington Food Truck Trailer park activity that took place in 2015. The LUX Wellington Night Lights Festival will not be taking place in 2017 during Visa WOAP.

To apply to be part of the Wellington Food Truck Rally, please complete the Food Truck Rally application form online at Applications close at 11.59pm on Monday 20 February. ABSOLUTELY no late entries will be accepted. 

Making an application

Before you start, please take the time to read the entire form carefully to see what information you will need to have ready. Set aside enough time (approx. 20 minutes) to enter all the information at once. Remember to ensure that your information is accurate and enticing for customers.

We appreciate that you may not have all the details just yet but please ensure you are putting your best foot forward. Forms filled in with “TBC”, “I don’t know” or other equivalents will not make it through to the selection process.

Please note that submitting this form does not guarantee your acceptance into the Wellington Food Truck Rally. Your application will be reviewed by a joint Visa WOAP committee and you will be notified as to whether you application has been successful in early March 2017.

A few things to consider…

  • It is anticipated that there will be more Food Trucks interested in this opportunity than there are spaces for each night.  If this is the case, a roster will be established.
  • In keeping with the theme of this activity, participants must be a true ‘Food Truck’ (i.e. move in, move out), not a market stall or street vendor (i.e. a vendor that sets up in a tent or marquee).
  • There will be no ‘overnighting’ permitted at any location without prior application and approval.
  • If your application is accepted, we will be asking for a few more bits of info, including imagery. This imagery sits alongside your website and programme guide Dine Wellington listing. We have a great photography deal available to get some snazzy images taken if you don’t have any. Please indicate your interest on the application forms and more information will be supplied if your application is accepted.
