Food Truckin' Fun Fair
Cleveland Showgrounds is being taken over by food trucks and amusement rides.
What's better than grabbing a meal from a food truck? Trying to choose from a lineup of meals-on-wheels vendors at a culinary pop-up that also doubles as a fun fair, of course. And that's what's on offer at the Cleveland Showgrounds between Thursday, November 5–Sunday, November 8 and again from Thursday, November 12–Sunday, November 15, with the Food Truckin' Fun Fair pairing up some of Brisbane's standout mobile eateries with a heap of amusement rides.
If you felt the Ekka's absence this year, this might just be the next best thing — and live music and sideshows are on the bill, too. We recommend hopping on the 35-metre ferris wheel, hitting the dodgem cars, jumping on the rocket simulator, bouncing on the bungee trampolines and slipping down the giant slide before you grab a bite to eat from Char Kor BBQ, Potato Tornado, Oh Waffles and Dan's Dim Sum Kitchen, because that's just common sense.
They're just some of the attractions and food trucks that'll be onsite, with Food Truckin' Fun Fair running from 5–9pm on Thursdays, 5–10pm on Fridays, 11am–10pm on Saturdays and 11am–9pm on Sundays.
Entry costs $4, and then you'll pay as you go once you're inside — but $50 ride coupon packs are also available in advance.
