It seems like DC is all about food trucks these days. No matter what you’re into, you can find a truck that serves it up. How about having all of your favorite food trucks in one place? That’s what’s happening on Saturday, May 5 from 11:30am until 9:00pm on the RFK Stadium Festival Grounds when Curbside Cookoff: Trucko De Mayo takes over.
Curbside Cookoff will feature free admission, live music including band ‘School of Rock’, two bars and 45 food trucks. There will also be a raffle with the chance to win free lunch from all of the participating food trucks, event tickets courtesy of Events DC, a Kindle Fire courtesy of Feelin’ Crabby, gift certificates, t-shirts and more.
“The DC Food Truck Association is proud to be organizers of Curbside Cookoff and to return this festival to the community,” said Che Ruddell-Tabisola, Executive Director and Co-Owner of the BBQ Bus. “By bringing together so many great food trucks at a venue such as RFK, we know that Curbside Cookoff is going to become the region’s premier food truck festival.”
The event is a production of Centerplate, Events DC and the DCFTA. The first Curbside Cookoff was held in 2010 and organized by the Washington, DC Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.
“Hosting the Curbside Cookoff on the RFK Stadium Festival Grounds allows us to showcase the largest number of food trucks, giving attendees the greatest number of food options in event history,” said Erik A. Moses, Managing Director of the Events DC Sports and Entertainment Division. “In addition to good food and entertainment, attendees can enjoy the festival-atmosphere and camaraderie throughout the day.”
The RFK Stadium Festival Grounds are easily accessible by Metrorail on the Blue and Orange lines (Stadium-Armory station) and numerous bus lines. For this event, free parking is available in Lots 4 and 5.
