The trucks will compete for two awards. The Critics’ Choice Award will go to the truck voted best by members of the Nashville Food Bloggers (a sponsor of the event along with Yelp). The People’s Choice Award will be decided by festivalgoers. Each time you make a purchase, you get one ballot to vote for your favorite truck.
It’s a family- and pet-friendly event, and attendees are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets to hang out and enjoy the food and entertainment. In addition to music, there will be a bounce house and games for the kids.
Advance tickets are available online for $5 (plus a convenience fee) or you can buy them at the gate for $7 (cash only). Children ages 6 and under are admitted free.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Hands On Nashville's Urban Agriculture program, which works to make food sourcing, nutrition and gardening accessible to communities. Please note that all of the fun and entertainment is included with your admission, but the food from the trucks is not. See the festival’s FAQs for more information.
