The food truck trend has largely skipped Sacramento because of strict city ordinances. But there's a little relief coming soon. The Sacramento Mobile Food Festival - a.k.a. SactoMoFo - will be held on April 30 from noon to 6 p.m. at Fremont Park (16th and Q streets, Sacramento).
The event will feature more than a dozen food trucks, including vendors from Yolo County and the San Francisco Bay Area. Adobo Hobo, a Bay Area food cart that specializes in such items as chicken adobo tacos and vegetarian adobo over rice, has already been confirmed. Also look for San Francisco's Sweetface Bakery, along with Sacramento taco trucks and a homemade ice cream vendor from Davis. Local restaurateurs are also expected to run their own food trucks and carts.
"One of the reasons for the event is to show proof to the City Council that these kinds of events work and they should kill current regulations that outlaw these carts," said Joshua Lurie-Terrell, an event organizer and founder of yumtacos.com.
We'll keep you updated as more vendors and information come through. Event organizers are meanwhile looking for additional food vendors and volunteers to help run the event. If you want to pitch in for this 100% volunteer-run event, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
