Street Eats Food Truck Festival With Tyler Florence Rolls Into Salt River Fields This Saturday

Categories: Events

​Looks as if the Valley's food truck phenomenon of 2011 is continuing into the start of the new year -- and this time, its bringing celebrity TV chef Tyler Florence and a bit of baseball with it.

Celebu-chef Tyler Florence will host the event.
​From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., this Saturday, January 14, at Salt River Fields near Talking Stick Resort, the Street Eats Food Truck Festival, presented by New Times, will feature over two dozen local mobile kitchens in the Center Field parking lot with celebu-chef Tyler Florence, host of Food Network's, The Great Food Truck Race, hosting the event.

As a bonus, the day of the food truck event at Salt River Fields, the new spring training home for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies, is also the first day that 2012 spring training tickets go on sale -- and ticket buyers will receive free admission to Street Eats.

Read on for ticket information, additional activities, and a list of confirmed food trucks for the event.

In addition to the mobile grub and Tyler Florence, the Street Eats Food Truck Festival will also feature cooking demonstrations, a market, tailgating games, and activities for the kiddies. Ticket holders will also have access to the all-day Happy Hour zone, which offers discounted drink prices.

Admission is $10 and tickets are available at the door, by phone at 1-888-490-0383, or online here. At the event, guests can purchase $2 vouchers that act as currency with the featured food trucks. Each truck will offer sample-size and full-size portions of their specialties in exchange for Street Eats vouchers.

So, you have to pay to get in, AND pay for food samples?
Not a good deal, if you ask me.


I was just scrolling down to post the same exact thing! Im curious to see if anyone ends up going because of this. unless maybe we get a few food tickets with the 10$ entrance fee that they forgot to post about, I wouldn't go strictly for the principle of how crappy it is for the event organizers to pull this. If they couldn't afford the venue without charging a fee on top of the food tickets, they either should have had it somewhere cheaper or postponed it until they had enough $.

step right up, folks...
step right up, folks...

 Amen. If I want to spend a day throwing money at walk-up food vendors and standing around watching celebrity B-listers, I'll head to the State Fair.
