SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The MO Food Truck Fest is one of the most exciting annual foodie events in Springfield.
This Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the festival at the Ozark Empire Fairground is open to visitors who want to explore what the 27 food trucks have to offer. Some of the trucks that will be there include London Calling, who was in the studio with us today to talk about the festival, as well as Ghetto Tacos, Elorne’s Jamaican Kitchen, The Lunar Lunchbox, Chameleon Cuisine and Beaver Tails.
Whether you’re looking for BBQ and tacos or ice cream and pizza, there’s something for everyone at this festival. Several vendors will also set up shop to offer people something to explore as they pass between snacks.
In addition to the great dining options, people can also enjoy live music and beer. Those who want to stay for a while are advised to bring a folding chair in which they can relax until they have enough room to try the wares of a new truck. There will be no sweating during the event.
This is the eighth year for the popular event. Entrance and parking are free. No non-service pets or outside food and drinks are allowed. Those looking for more information can visit the festival’s website.
