C’mon Tucson, We Could Totally Pull This Off

Posted By on Fri, Jul 8, 2011 at 10:00 AM

Imagine, if you will, a Tucson food-truck festival where hot dogs, carne asada, crepes, Hawaiian shave ice, gourmet cheese steaks, raspados and all sorts of other delicious foods danced together while live music filled the air.

Other cities are doing it, and the response has been great. One of my personal favorites is the Off the Grid program in San Francisco, which amounts to a mobile food court where all sorts of small-time food vendors set up.

I know it would work. Look at the annual Tucson Meet Yourself festival, where people stand in line forever at food trailers, many of which only come out once a year. It’s an absolute blast, and joy of that caliber should not take place but once a year.

A couple local groups are talking about doing it—David Aguirre of Dinnerware Artspace has expressed the most serious commitment to it so far—and I for one can’t wait until something concrete emerges.
