The Limerick International Food Truck Festival is the first dedicated event of its kind to take place in Ireland and will be based in the heart of Limerick city’s People’s Park from 1st – 5th June 2017. The event will see an explosion of international cuisine with more than 60 food trucks from 14 countries taking part in the European Food Truck Association’s annual festival along with local and national traders.
Festival goers will be treated to some of the most appetising, innovative, original and exotic foods imaginable with a new twist on some old classics like pizza, pasta, fries and gourmet sandwiches along with many never before seen dishes on Irish shores.
Highlights will include a Belgian artisan chocolate truck, preparing some spectacular chocolate dishes from scratch, a lobster burger truck and ones serving shark and crocodile treats with even a truck specialising in insect dishes as well as tasty dishes from oriental, American, French, Mexican, BBQ trucks and much more.
The Limerick International Food Truck Festival will also feature live music and a selection of great craft beers on offer as well as lots of family fun entertainment.
The campaign to bring the festival, which will attract some of the most celebrated vendors in what is a rapidly growing European street food phenomenon, is led by well-known food enthusiast, Darragh Ryan, Limerick City and County Council and Alan Woods, President of Food Truck Association of Ireland and co-owner of Mexican Food Dudes. The campaign comes on the back of the Limerick Boardwalk Street Food event that has become such a hit in the city on Wednesday lunchtimes over the summer months.
