ONTARIO, Calif. – On Saturday, June 18, 2011 the first-ever IE Food Truck Fest, featuring gourmet mobile eateries, launches at Citizens Business Bank Arena. Tickets go on sale TODAY, April 19, 2011 at 10 a.m. on ticketmaster.com. Spotlighting the gourmet food truck movement that has exploded over this past year, the festival is celebrating this new style of street food to the untapped community of the Inland Empire. As you may or may not know, gourmet food trucks are prohibited to roam the streets in the Inland Empire area. The one-day festival is a solution to provide an experience many people have only heard about.
The IE Food Truck Fest is meant to showcase the delectable cuisine that has rolled out on our SoCal streets in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. With a diverse mix of 50 gourmet food trucks gathered at the Citizens Business Bank Arena, the community can experience several epicurean delights all at one location.
In addition to featuring these mobile eateries, there will be a skate demo provided by Active Ride Shop, live local music and DJs, activities for children, giveaways and much more.
The one-day event is expected to bring an attendance of 8,000 to 10,000 people. The audience will range from families and food enthusiasts to young 20-somethings and social media advocates. The gourmet food truck trend took off by word-of-mouth via Twitter. Visit www.iefoodtruckfest.com for details.
