Mid-South Food Truck Festival This Weekend At Tiger Lane
This Saturday April 27th is the fifth annual Mid-South Food Truck Festival, a chance to sample (or, you know, stuff your face) with the best food truck cuisine in the region. More than 30 trucks will be on hand at Tiger Lane from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
There are local trucks and trucks from out of town; click here if you want to see the lineup.
How It Works
You buy an entry tickets, then you buy your food.
At the gate, tickets are $8 for adults, $3 for kids, and $5 U of M students with ID. You can save a few bucks if you buy them online ahead of time.
Food prices vary, but trucks will have some $3 sample items, while supplies last.
City Tasting Tours
This is what I recommend to make the most of the Food Truck Festival, but ticket sales close on Thursday night (April 25th) so hurry and buy them now.
At 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, you can join local foodie Cristina McCarter on her VIP City Tasting Tours experience at the Food Truck Fest. It’s $45 + fees and allows you to skip the lines and have a guide, plus includes five samples from five trucks (Cousins Maine Lobster, New Wing Order, Churrasco Memphis, Twisted Tacos, and Hole Lotta Loukoumades).
If you don’t do that – or tickets are sold out by the time you read this – I’d still recommend arriving as early as possible to avoid major lines and sellouts on popular items.
Once you’re done stuffing your face, you can hang out, listen to music, and watch the Deangelo Williams Throwin’ For A Cure Cornhole Tournament, benefitting breast cancer prevention and research.
