Call for food trucks: Join us for one of the biggest events of the summer

Do you own a food truck? Do you serve up top-notch food that you'd like to introduce to a bigger audience of mobile food fans?

If so, we'd love you to join us at our second MKE Food Truck Fest, a true celebration of mobile eats. During the festival, you will have the opportunity to sell your most popular items to a group of hungry food truck fans. 

This year's MKE Food Truck Fest will take place at Henry Maier Festival Park, 200 N.

Harbor Dr. on Saturday, July 23  from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Last year's event sold out quickly, and we are expecting the same to be true this year.

All trucks must hold a current mobile food license and a certificate of insurance in order to participate.

For more information or to sign up for the event, email [email protected] and specify your interest in MKE Food Truck Fest.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish.

She's had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book "Milwaukee Food." Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she's not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you'll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
