We're counting down the days until the first Main Street Food Truck Festival. Scheduled for 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Oct. 1, the festival aims to bring as many area food trucks to downtown Little Rock as possible. Main Street from Third St. to Seventh St. will be blocked off and there'll be music, a beer garden, live art and a costume sale at The Rep. Admission is free.
So far the festival has confirmed Hot Dog Mike, Louis and Edna's Mobile Kitchen, Dream Eats Cafe, Papa's Burgers and Dogs, Green Cuisine, Christian's Take-out Too and Grills on Wheels (a new truck making its debut at the festival) and expects Pierre's Gourmet Pizza, Banana Leaf, Peace Hog Mobile Cafe and Luncheria Mexicana Alicia to also participate. Becky Falkowski of main-presenter Downtown Little Rock Partnership said that she's working to reach out to more taco trucks.
