You'll be able to taste cuisine from Filipino food truck the Manila Machine, dim sum from the Dim Sum Truck, and balls of food from Great Balls on Tires. There's even celebrity food trucks in the mix. Three of the trucks from the Food Network's upcoming new show The Great Food Truck Race—Crepes Bonaparte, Nana Queens, Nom Nom Truck—will cook up eats.
Admission is $12 and $6 for kids. Trucks will have tasting-sized portions for $1-$5, so you can sample a ton of the offerings. There also will be a beer and wine garden as well as entertainment. Bands will take the stage and dancers will perform, including the Beat Freaks from MTV's America's best Dance Crew.
Boston's first Food Truck Festival on August 8 will be a less formal affair. Citysearch Boston is throwing the shindig in conjunction with the city's SoWa Sundays market. Fourteen food trucks will roll into the South End to sell their grub. Participants include soul-food peddler Fillbelly's, famed hot dog hawker Speed's, and barbecue wagon M&M Ribs. There's no admission; just order directly off the trucks' regular menus.
