Will I see you at the Cambridge Food Truck Festival Next weekend?

Food Truck Festivals of New England is pleased to announce the first-ever Cambridge Food Truck Festival at Kendall Square on Saturday, June 8th. Over 20 of the area’s best food trucks will all be there serving everything from gourmet grilled cheese to lobster mac & cheese to brown sugar marinated hotdogs to spicy Asian noodles and homemade ice cream sandwiches. Cambridge will also kick-off the Food Truck Festivals of New England season, which includes 6 festivals in total, throughout the state of Massachusetts and concluding in Newport, RI in October.

The Cambridge Food Truck Festival will run from 11:00am – 5:00pm and will feature children’s activities, sampling tables and entertainment, in addition to food trucks from all over New England. Partial proceeds from the Cambridge Food Truck Festival will benefit the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts.

Participating trucks include:
  • Area 4

All trucks will be serving sample portions as well as full meals. Menu items will be announced next week.

The 2013 season will also include a new, more simplified ticketing system, with wristbands for sale at a discounted price in advance online for $7, and $10 at the festival, with $1 benefiting the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts. The wristbands will serve as an entry ticket to the event and give attendees access to the trucks and the entertainment as well as special Festival Food prices at all trucks. Walk-ups are also welcome and can pay a higher “walk-up” price at the trucks.

A special VIP experience is also being offered, presented by Boston.com, which gives attendees the opportunity to skip the lines and enjoy free beverages and samples from the trucks for a 2-hour period.
