Maryland’s finest gourmet food trucks will take over the Racetrack Infield at Maryland State Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 30, for the first ever Trifecta Food Truck Festival. This will be a family-friendly celebration of food, local craft beers and live music. The Trifecta Food Truck Festival provides free parking and admission is free for children 12 and under.
The infield will be converted into a festive play-land for adults and children alike, featuring a variety of entertaining activities including giant beer pong, corn hole competitions, dunk tanks, kids party truck, moon bounces, face painting, a visit by The Oriole bird and so much more. There will be incredible bands playing on the infield stage all day long. Featured acts include an amazing Allman Brothers Tribute band from NY called Brothers of The Road, long-time Baltimore favorites All Mighty Senators, Jah Works, Kelly Bell Band, Bosley, Reverend Smackmaster and Gypsy Soul Revival. There will also be a vendor village showcasing local artists, businesses and non-profit organizations.
Due to the enormous food truck craze enveloping many cities across the country it was only a matter of time before it hit Baltimore. Paul Manna, 24-7 Entertainment concert promoter and the man behind The Shindig Music Festival, and Dave Rather, owner of Mother’s Federal Hill Grille and the newly opened Mother’s in Timonium, are the driving force behind the Trifecta Food Truck Festival. Manna said, “The goal is finding the perfect balance between throwing a big party with gourmet food trucks, booking the best local bands, and providing a space for the entire family to enjoy. Many of Maryland’s most popular events are held in the city. Baltimore County deserves a large scale event like this they can call their own.”
President of The Maryland Mobile Food Vending Association, Dave Pulford said, “Our members are very excited to work with 24-7 Entertainment to produce the premier Food Truck event! With a wide variety of food offered by the best food trucks in Maryland and the entertainment that will be there, this event is a must attend by everyone that enjoys food and music!”
Festival attendees will be able to relax under large dining tents enjoying a wide assortment of treats from Maryland’s most popular savory and sweet food trucks. One of the food truck participants, Drew Pumphrey, chef and owner of the award winning truck, The Smoking Swine, was recently featured on The Food Network “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” with Guy Fieri. Drew spoke about the event saying, “This event has all the hallmarks of a great time for everyone involved. You’ve got only the best food trucks the region has to offer, amazing live local music and it’s all put on by 24-7 Entertainment, so you know it’s going to rock!”
