Taste of Three Cities Food Truck Festival

food trucks

On Saturday, May 9th, 60 food trucks from Philly, Baltimore, and Washington DC will descend upon Xfinity Live to compete for the title of best food truck in the Taste of Three Cities Food Truck Festival. A portion of the proceeds of the event will benefit Philabundance.

The entire lineup of trucks has yet to be announced, but some of the participants will include the Surf and Turf Truck, The Cow and the Curd, Luscious Bakery, Philly’s Finest Samboni Boys, Sum Pig Food Truck, Kommie Pig, BBQ Bus DC, and Baron Von Schwein.

VIP tickets are $65 and get you into the festival at 11 am (that’s one hour before the general admission plebeians get in) and one all you care to drink (or as I like to think of it: all your liver can handle) pass, as well as seating in the special VIP area. General admission is only $15, and includes entry to the festival and one vote in the People’s Choice awards. Get your tickets here.
