Southern California has long been known for its award-winning festivals and fabulous dining options. Now, due to innovative food truck design and creative social distancing options, you won’t have to travel to five-star restaurants to seek out good eats; food trucks are bringing their menus practically to your doorstep. The line-up of amazing food truck events in SoCal this year is already making our mouths water.
FoodTrucks Aplenty in San Diego
While local breweries in San Diego always do their part to rotate through food trucks and offer you both a cold beverage and some tasty meals, there are bigger food truck events underway this season as well.
Curbside Lunch Break
There are weekly opportunities to grab some curbside bites downtown during your lunch break. Every Wednesday in Downtown San Diego the block on B St between India and Columbia is closed off for a lunch break food truck festival. Six gourmet San Diego food trucks are there weekly dishing out their specialties. Take a look at this food truck map to see which trucks will be there this week. After lunch, seek out San Diego’s top ten ice cream food trucks.
San Diego Taco and Beer Festival: July 10, 2021
The San Diego Taco & Beer Festival is returning with craft beer and complimentary taco tastings. Some top food trucks in SoCal will be attending to offering you their taco concoctions as well as selling additional food and beverage items. There will be live music and other vendors too. For more information or to purchase tickets, check out their event link.
Coastal Cuisine in Del Mar
Just up the coast from San Diego’s food truck scene Del Mar is offering up their own festival this spring.
Del Mar Gourmet Food Truck Festival 2021: August TBD
Some of the best meals on wheels are promised to be at the Del Mar Gourmet Food Truck Festival this August. There should be a varied assortment of food trucks represented by some of SoCal’s top chefs, as well as food trucks coming in from across the US. In previous years, there have been items ranging from stuffed hamburgers to comfort food, creative desserts to lobster rolls. Keep checking back to see this year’s lineup.
Valley Center Events
Spring Arts, Crafts & Vintage Market in Valley Center: April 24-25, 2021
A quick drive out of the center of San Diego will bring you to Valley Center where you can enjoy their arts and crafts market this spring. While shopping for their one-of-a-kind wares and handmade art, you will be able to enjoy multiple on-site food truck offerings.
Los Angeles and the Surrounding Area
Food Truck Fest at the Southern California Railway Museum, Perris: April 24, 2021
Take a tour “Behind the Scenes” of the SoCal Railway Museum and get access to places not typically open to the public, check out the rail cars, drive a real locomotive, and then dive into the food trucks on site. Tickets are $12 unless you happen to be a member of the museum, then it’s free.
Street Food Cinema
Dinner and a show? Street Food Cinema brings the best of both worlds with several locations in SoCal. You can watch a classic or newly released film while enjoying their nightly food truck lineups. Be sure to check their website for current food regulations in LA County to see what options will be available when you plan to attend.
