It’s the highlight of the summer! Bring your friends and family out for a night of great food, awesome music and local beer! Over 20 food trucks come to town to show off their delicious menus and it’s sure not to disappoint with flavors from around the world.
Pro tip – food trucks are designed to make out of this world food, but those good eats might mean a little bit of a line, but they promise it’s worth it!
Help us make this event a green event! When you visit make sure your items hit the right trash, recycling or organics container. Look for staff and volunteers if you have questions!

Tips for Attending
To make your event experience a positive one, we suggest:
- Food truck events of this scale typically draw thousands of people and lines should be expected.
- Come with a group and split up to get into food truck lines, then meet up to share your food selections. You’ll be able to try more food without standing in line as often.
- Food truck lines may look long, but truck staff is well-versed in serving large numbers of people, fairly quickly. Just because a food truck line looks long, doesn’t mean you will wait long.
- Review posted menus so you know what you want to purchase before you get to the food truck window. Those in line behind you will appreciate it.
- Come with cash. All food trucks take cash, most take credit cards too.
- Bring lawn chairs, picnic blankets or small folding tables to create your own picnic area.
- Share picnic tables – we increased the number of picnic tables to 75, scattered around the music and food areas. Please clean items off your table when finished. Garbage and recycling containers will be plentiful.
