After a year off (like everything else in 2020) the Minnesota Food Truck Festival is returning with a pair of Twin Cities events -- each promising more than fifty trucks.

We're getting close, as the first one hits this Saturday, July 17th at the Union Depot in downtown Saint Paul from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm, with the second coming on Saturday,  August 21st in Anoka from Noon to 10:00 pm.

In addition to the delicious eats, the free events will feature craft beers (plus hard ciders & seltzers as well as non-alcoholic options), live music, dog activities, and other fun, games, and giveaways.

We will be showcasing over 50 superstars of the streets with dishes ranging from crispy pork belly and green papaya salad to gourmet mini doughnuts and wood fired pizzas.

You'll also find a number of trucks offering things like men's grooming, vintage vinyl, a photo booth, a mobile escape room experience, salon services, and other non-food stuff.

From giant connect 4, bags and hammerschlagen, we're confident you will find plenty of entertainment. Did we already say hammerschlagen? It's pretty fun.

The festival organizers are keenly aware that health and safety are a priority, and will be following the state's & CDC’s guidelines & recommendations closely. They will be creating additional hand washing & sanitation stations and will be accommodating additional spacing and social distancing protocols. They will also have dedicated table wipers for your table wiping needs.

You can get even more information on the Food truck Festival's website.
