Uptown Food Truck Festival

  • Lake & Hennepin Minneapolis, Minnesota United States (map)

With 65-plus food trucks, the Uptown Food Truck Festival is the largest Food Truck Festival in the Midwest. Food offerings will range from global cuisines such as green papaya salad to crispy pork belly to American favorites such as gourmet mini doughnuts and wood-fired pizza. Organizers have increased the event space moving south of 31st on Hennepin, and enlarged the seating area with chairs and tables to enhance the experience for families of all ages and sizes.

In addition to the de-lish food trucks, you can experience a handful of unique businesses of four wheels. Fashion Trucks, Vintage Record truck, shoe shines & beard trims in a classic airstream trailer, photo booth truck and something just for your four legged friends from Blue Buffalo.

Other activities include life-size Jenga, mechanical bull, bean bag toss, henna tattoo artists and a psychic tarot reader.

The 10-hour Uptown Food Truck Festival features live music all day...

You'll be able to enjoy handcrafted beers by Kona Brewing Company, Elysian Brewing & Goose Island. Other beverage options will also be available. The event is free, but a $2.00 wristband is required for those who are indulging in the brews. Proceeds from all wristband sales will benefit Feed My Starving Children to provide meals to impoverished families and children. Last year, over 44K meals were raised!

For those wanting to get out of the sun and cool down, The Uptown Food Truck Festival has partnered with Calhoun Square, offering fair-goers an indoor respite before venturing back outside for one more.
