Food Truck Festival Coming to Troy!

I remember hearing about this on twitter, but after seeing a blurb about it on All Over Albany it's official - Troy is going to have a food truck festival. Now they're toting it as the first ever food truck festival in New York.

That's not entirely true.

Back in 2010 M and I went to the Vendy Awards on Governors Island, which was food truck festival of sorts... and a spattering of food carts. Okay, so not a straight up food truck festival. The Troy event can have the moniker of first ever.

Nitpickiness aside, I am pumped for this. The festival will be on May 4th, so not too far away. You can't bring your alcoholic beverages, but you'll be able to buy some there with a magical five dollar beer token. And apparently coolers, pets, skateboards, and bikes are forbidden as well. I hope the city considers possibly placing a bunch of bike racks outside the perimeter of the festival for us peddlers.

Here's the current list of trucks participating:

  • Wandering Dago
  • Pies on Wheels
  • Aegean Greek
  • Good Eats
  • Slidin Dirty
  • The Spud Shack
  • Gwenies Breakfast Wagon
  • Fast Trax
  • Bootleggers
  • Sweet Temptations
  • Kona Ice
  • Fitsy's Fork in the Road
