Jacksonville, FL: Jax Truckies Food Truck Championship Set for March 31

By Gary Mills | Jacksonville.com

You’ve seen food trucks on TV. You’ve read about food trucks in this column. And perhaps you’ve even tried a couple of food trucks in and around Jacksonville.

On Saturday, March 31, however, you’ll be able to fully immerse yourself in food truck culture when Bold City Brewery hosts the Jax Truckies Food Truck Championship, featuring food trucks from across the city.

But to do that, you’ll need to act fast. Less than four days after tickets first went on sale, fewer than 100 general admission tickets remained for the event, which is limited to 300 attendees. While supplies last, tickets ($5) are available at www.metrojacksonville.com/JaxTruckies. (Food tickets will be sold the day of the event for $1 each or 20 for $18.)

The Jax Truckies will crown Jacksonville’s best food truck based on the votes of seasoned foodie judges. A people’s choice honor will be awarded by attendees’ votes.

The event runs noon to 3 p.m. at Bold City Brewery, 2670 Rosselle St., #7 in Riverside. Canned food donations, benefitting Second Harvest North Florida food bank, will be accepted.
