The Minnesota Food Truck Association will be hosting the 3rd Annual Northeast Food Truck Rally, sponsored by Able Seedhouse & Brewery & Meals On Wheels. This year our theme we will have 12 trucks that follow the them “Around the World” so no two trucks will be the same!

More popular local bands will be back on the stage, stay tuned as we announce the line-up! The new rally time ending at 10 pm will allow the party to go well into the evening, a great way to enjoy a Minnesota summer night!

Secondhand Hounds will be joining us with puppies and the puppy kissing booth!

Games for the whole family! We’ll have a giant inflatable slide, a bounce house and a giant Connect Four game. There will be face painting and plenty of space for kids to play.

Vendors! We will have some retail vendors and some other community organizations there that you will enjoy, and if you know anyone that might be interested in being a vendor, please let us know!

The concept of food trucks partnering with Meals On Wheels is a great one and we’re excited to promote their cause. Meals On Wheels is a non-profit, community based organization that delivers meals directly to the homes of seniors and individuals with disabilities throughout the Twin Cities.

We look forward to seeing you there!
