If you've been itching to try all of Memphis' new food trucks but don't have time to go chasing them all over town, here's the solution: assignment #200 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to go to a food truck rodeo.
The rodeos, which are staged by the newly-formed Memphis Food Truckers Association, are a weekly gathering of trucks of all kinds in a specific location. The first few Sunday afternoon rodeos were held on Broad Ave., but recently, they've moved to Shelby Farms (where they'll be for the rest of the summer).
Usually, about 12 – 15 trucks show up and serve everything from pizza and frozen yogurt to tacos and bread pudding. The lines can get a little long, but be patient – food trucks are still fairly new to Memphis, and we tend to get really excited about new food. As more trucks join the association and come to the rodeos, the lines will be shorter and there will be more food variety.
Keep an eye on the Memphis Food Truckers Association for more information on the weekly rodeos.
Sunday Afternoons, 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Various locations (but they'll be at Shelby Farms through the end of Summer 2012).
