Since it began four years ago, PARKED! Food Truck Festival has grown from a small slapdash culinary event with only five vendors to a full-on foodfest, with over 20 trucks participating in this year’s event, which will take place at the South Street Seaport on August 20.
The list of participating trucks include Big D’s Grub, CoolHaus Ice Cream, The Cinnamon Snail, Cupcake Crew, Feed Your Hole, Frites ‘n’ Meats, Gorilla Cheese Truck, Go Burger, JoyRide, Kelvin Natural Slush Co., Kimchi Taco, La Belle Torte, La Cense Burger, Mexicue Food Truck, Red Hook Lobster Pound, Taim Falafel, The Treats Truck, Valduccis Pizza Truck, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, Wafels & Dinges, Green Pirate Juice, Schnitzel and Things, Desi Food Truck, Two Pitas, Wooly’s Ice, and Anne Apparu Soup Caravan. All trucks will be offering items at a five dollar and eight dollar price point along with their regular menu, and a beer garden will also be created on-site. The festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., though in situations like these, it’s best to go early to avoid the hungry crowds and long lines.
