The Texas Food Truck Showdown

April 1 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm

The Texas Food Truck Showdown, hosted by the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce, will present its third annual event in the heart of downtown Waco on April 1. This year’s event will feature 38 food trucks from around Texas, a grand prize of $5,000, presale tickets, live entertainment and more.

Celebrity judging will kick off the full day of activities from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Food trucks will sell their signature dish from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., where the public will determine the People’s Choice award winner. Trucks will only take Tasty Tickets during this time to speed up food lines and focus on serving their signature dish.

No admission cost. However, there is a cost for food. One Tasty Ticket is $5 for a 4 oz signature dish.

Food trucks will reopen at 5 p.m. with their full menus until 8 p.m., and Tasty Tickets will no longer be accepted at that time.

Food trucks from across Texas will be featuring a variety of food from fish tacos and sushi to lasagna, pizza and more. The pet-friendly showdown will include live entertainment throughout the day on the main stage and a Guns 4 Roses Tribute band at 6 p.m.; a KidsZone; Artists Market; Live Broadcasts from iHeartMedia on site from Waco 100; and Beer and Wine Gardens.
