Third annual Food Truck Fest moves to Summit Park in Blue Ash

Mark your calendars for the Cincinnati Food Truck Association’s third annual Food Fest 11 a.m.-9 p.m. July 29. This year’s festival is in a new location and will feature more food trucks than ever before.
Food Fest had been held in Washington Park for the past two years, but this year it’s moving to Summit Park in Blue Ash to accommodate more trucks and larger crowds. Thirty-four trucks will be present this year, and craft beer will be available from local breweries such as Ei8ht Ball Brewing, MadTree Brewing, Old Firehouse Brewery and Urban Artifact Brewery.
The event is set up so you can swing by on your lunch break, stop by for dinner or make a day of it. Live music will be playing throughout the day from Magic Noodle House, JDesiree, Joe Wannabee and the Mad Man’s Blues Band and DJ Nate the Great.
Food Fest is free and open to the public, and the majority of the dishes served on the trucks range between $5 and $10.
