A fall festival is planned for central Phoenix featuring live music, beer, wine and a range of food from the hottest trend for urban diners, the food truck.

The first annual Phoenix Food Truck Festival will be held from 4 to 11 p.m. Oct. 22 along Roosevelt Street in the arts district of downtown Phoenix.

Locally owned and independent Stinkweeds Records is sponsoring the live music as part of the festival and will feature four different bands throughout the event.

Tempe’s local brewery, Four Peaks, will bring the Four Peaks Beer Truck downtown, while Dos Cabezas Winery also will be on hand to provide a cash bar for thirsty attendees.

More than two dozen food trucks and carts are expected to be on hand for the event, providing hungry patrons an opportunity to taste the latest trends in urban food hitting New York and Los Angeles.

The event will take place at A.R.T.S. Project #1, 408 E. Roosevelt St., in downtown Phoenix. It is sponsored by the Roosevelt Row Community Development Corp. and the Phoenix Street Food Coalition, an association of mobile food vendors. Roosevelt Row Community Development Corporation is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization aimed at growing and fostering a dense, diverse and walkable urban environment.

Tickets cost $25 until Oct. 10, when prices increase to $30 through Oct. 21, and $35 at the door. A range of small samples are included as part of the entry price. Additional food items are available for sale.
