Street Eats at Salt River Fields Jan 30-31

Street Eats is the food truck festival held at Salt River fields Jan. 30-31 from 11am-6pm with more than 50 food trucks participating. They're cooking up full menus and $2 samples so guests can try more than one truck! The two-day festival is packed with plenty of live entertainment including two new eating contests, live music and cooking demonstrations from Citizen Public House, The Gladly, Cafe ZuZu at Hotel Valley Ho and more.

The Street Eats Food Truck Festival allows food truck fans to enjoy two full days of street food mania with the largest collection of food trucks in the southwest. Nosh on every type of cuisine imaginable! This five-acre festival takes place in late January/early February and includes live bands, cooking classes, fun eating contests, a huge kid's zone, and bars operated by some of your favorite local establishments.

Once inside the festival, you can purchase tokens worth $2 each. These will be used in lieu of cash at the bars. At the food trucks, you can use tokens, cash, or credit cards (most trucks take them). Trucks themselves will sell food at prices of their choosing, however, they're aware that you just shelled out 12 bucks to get in, so they all offer a $2 "sample" option so you can try as many trucks as possible. But if you want a full meal, most trucks will also have those as well.

General Admission: $12 (children 12 & under: FREE)
VIP: $50
