This May, the banks of the Yarra will come alive for Melbourne's biggest food truck festival yet, thanks to the minds behind The Food Truck Park.
Set to eclipse the collective's regular events in Preston and at Village Cinemas Coburg Drive-In, the Food Truck Festival will see the city's best four-wheeled food vendors descend on Birrarung Marr across five huge days.
Running from May 2–6, the culinary lineup will be divided into east, south, north and west, representing the most popular food trucks from each corner of Melbourne. And you can expect to be totally spoilt for choice, with over 40 vendors slinging everything from fried chicken and Asian-inspired eats, to vegan fare and craft beers. What's more, sweet tooths will find their ultimate oasis in Sweet Lane — a festival precinct dedicated entirely to desserts.
Rounding out the edible goodness will be a program of art, family-friendly entertainment and other fun, with entry free across the entire festival. It will be open from 4–10pm on Wednesday and Thursday, and 11am–10pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
