Street Eats Food Truck Fest

The Food Truck festival ended up being a lot of fun! I didn't take a ton of photos but here are a few...

food truck fest
There were about 50 trucks all parked on a huge field next to the AZ Dbacks Spring Training facility.

School of Rock band
They had live music as well. This is when it first opened, more people came by to watch the bands.

funnel cake!
In addition to the trucks there were also random stands set up. I knew I wasn't leaving without a funnel cake!

Chef Geoffrey Zakarian doing a demo
There was a cooking demo from the Food Network's Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. He was pretty funny.

Tom and his cheese steak
Tom got a Philly Cheesesteak and loved it, even though you couldn't tell from this photo.

cheese curds and cheese steak
I got fried cheese curds and they were delicious! The friends we went with got a grilled cheese sandwich with pulled pork and mac n' cheese ON the sandwich. There was also fry bread, lots of hot dog places, and everything you could imagine that could be made in a food truck.

Cody Ross at the food truck fest
Even the newest AZ Dback, Cody Ross, made it out for the event.

We spent about 2 hours walking around and deciding on what to eat, but in the end this was the best thing I had...

Funnel cake!
Deep fried funnel cake perfection!


  1. WOW I wish this came to the SF Bay Area!!!

  2. That is sooo cool. (looks like it was literally cool too--how cold was it by the time you guys went?) All that food reminds me of the fair, I love all the fried stuff. Good call on the funnel cake. :)

    1. It was about 50 degrees, but the bright sunshine helped a lot.

  3. Whoa! This sounds like SUCH an awesome event!!

  4. Now this looks like fun with all food choices. I'd have to have funnel cake too.

  5. YUM! This looks like a delicious event :D

  6. I would love to have been there. Bad thing would be wanting to try everything there!

  7. Lucky you! It all sounds great! Haven't had a funnel cake in ages. Wish we had this here!

  8. I love events like this! Portland has lots of food trucks and the food is always terrific.
