The 1st annual Taste of the Trucks Festival, designed to celebrate the nation’s growing food truck movement, will be held Saturday, Sept. 15, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at 8th and Spring Streets in Midtown.

With more than 20 gourmet food trucks attending, live entertainment from Abby Wren and saxophonist Dwan Bosman, there will be plenty of fun to be had – plus a portion of the total proceeds from the event will benefit Metro Atlanta’s Children’s Restoration Network to support homeless children and mothers in the area.

Admission to the event is $10, or if you pay using Taste of the Trucks’ sponsor LevelUp, the free app that lets you pay with your phone, your admission is free. With admission, you’ll receive 3 taste tickets to use at any food truck from New Orleans po’boys at Just Loaf’n to One Love Jerk Grill.

  1. While this sounded like a fantastically fun and tasty time, it turned out to be an exercise in frustration. We got there at 12.30 and some of the trucks had already run out of food samples. The lines were incredibly long, some of the samples were not even a bite, some told us samples had run out after waiting in line for 15 minutes, there wasn’t much shade, the gravel parking-lot made it nearly impossible to push a stroller through the festival, most of the food was over-priced, and it just generally wasn’t in any way worth $10 (or even the $5 deal we got). Thankfully a part of the money goes to helping children. To be fair, the tasty wraps truck gave a very nice, generous and tasty sample, as did the little jimmy’s italian ice’s. A lot of the long line issues would have been resolved if there had been more trucks. The kids would have been happier if there had been more activities for them. The idea was great, but the execution left much to be desired. Either way, I hope the charity made lots of money.

  2. I agree i got there at 2 and it was worse…it was dirty and they had no more sample cupons to offer ….i had to turn back, did not looked tempting at all, I have been to a lot of festivals but nothing like this one! what a waste of money and time!!!
