2019 Food Truck Fest

Get ready for the sixth annual Metro Parks Food Truck Fest on July 21, 2019 in Wright Park (501 South I St.)!

Enjoy music and other entertainment on the main stage, and a beer garden along with food from dozens of food trucks.

Food truck offerings range wide, from classic American picnic fare to ethnic and fusion. So if you’d rather not indulge in burgers or barbecue, alternatives include Hawaiian poke, Middle Eastern falafel, Greek gyros and Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches.

Wright Park is the perfect location for this gathering. You can get something to eat, enjoy the natural setting, listen to music, dance and let the kids run around.
