What started as a humble little fest with five trucks and 500 customers in 2011 has grown to a highly anticipated annual event. The ninth annual Charleston Food Truck Festival
spans two days, this Sat. Jan. 25-Sun. Jan. 26, with more than 25 food trucks from around the southeast serving up everything from donuts to sushi. The free-to-attend festival takes place in North Charleston at 1681 McMillan Ave. from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Participating trucks include local faves like Roti Rolls
, Diggity Doughnuts
, Pita Stroller
, Immortal Lobster, Tamashii
, and Mally Racks Garlic Crabs
. Visiting trucks include Chazito's Latin Cuisine
, The Gnosh Pit
, Gekko Sushi
, and Molly's Fish and Chips
In addition to the eclectic mix of cuisines, there will be a beer and wine bar and non-alcoholic bevs, plus free parking and kids activities. The event is also leashed-dog friendly, but be sure to clean up after your pet. Most trucks will accept cash or card, but as always, cash is king.
