Calling All Food Trucks!

Posted By on Thu, Sep 15, 2011 at 12:00 PM

As I’ve mentioned in the past, a local food-truck festival would be awesome. Gathering a half-dozen or more mobile-food operations and providing a central dining area would provide a unique eating experience while creating a micro-economy that could help spur Tucson’s mobile-food movement forward.

Hey, it’s worked in other cities, so why not here? I could dig on a scene where Sonoran hot dogs, desserts, tacos, tostinos preparados and other street foods intermingled. Bands could play. Maybe a beer garden? The possibilities are endless.

The owners of the Dragoon Café food truck are trying to organize just such a festival for Tucson, but they're having trouble finding enough food trucks to participate.

So if you know any food trucks that might be interested — or if you happen to own a food truck — you might consider contacting them over here.

Also, what do you all think about a local food-truck festival? Would you attend? If you'd be so kind as to leave some comments or ideas in the comments section below, that would be great. Together we might just be able to make this happen.
