Inaugural Food Truck Bash: October 27th

Food_Truck_Bash-logoBuy your tickets for this all-day festival highlighting the best food trucks in Providence, Boston and New York! Starting at 11 AM, eat your way through the Providence Rink at the Bank of America City Center, tasting offerings from 10 fantastic trucks. Support your favorite locals—Fugo, Portu-Galo, and Radish—while sizing up the out-of-state competition from Boston’s Baddest Burger, Phil’s Steaks, Wafels & Dinges, The Chubby Chickpea, Big D’s, Nuchas, and Roxy’s Gourmet Grilled Cheese.

Throughout the day, enjoy a Narragansett beer garden, music, giveaways, face painting, and on-site voting for the best truck. Make sure to bring your best contest, put your vampire or joker teeth in, and don’t miss the bouncy house, Bash Booth, and other fun activities including a Halloween costume contest at 1 PM.

At 3 PM, celebrity judges Meaghan Mooney, host of the Rhode Show on WPRI, David Dadekian of Eat Drink Rhode Island, and Amy McCoy, author of Poor Girl Gourmet cookbook, will award prizes for the Best of Maker’s Mark ® Bourbon, the Most Creative Dish, and the Best of the Northeast. The fun continues all afternoon until 8 PM.

Advance tickets are just $6 through Brown Paper Tickets (until midnight on Thursday, October 24th). They’ll also be available at the door for $8. Visit for more details.
