Aside from the Parkway traffic headed to the shore, one thing that really tells us it’s summer is a good food truck festival.

There are all different kinds of food, drinks, live music, and entertainment not only for you but your kids too, and a great time to get together with friends.


New Jersey has a huge list of food truck festivals and they are all themed to fit your liking.

Whether you enjoy seafood, BBQ, if you’re vegan, or anything in between, there is a food truck fest for it.

It might feel like the year is going by fast because it is, but it’s still early for these food trucks to start. And there’s an ever-growing list of these festivals happening in New Jersey this year.

This is the perfect time to start planning out your Spring/Summer/Fall plans with these food truck festivals.
