Busy downtown Little Rock at the Main Street Food Truck Festival

Around 20,000 people flocked to Main St. in Downtown Little Rock, also known as the Creative Corridor, for the 5th annual Food Truck Festival on Saturday, Oct. 3, which is believed to be doubled last year’s numbers.  The festival extended from Third to Eighth Street had more than 45 food trucks, live music, raffled events and craft booths for a wonderful day of family fun from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This event was jam packed with people who have a passion for food from all walks of life.  These food styles ranged from your classic southern comfort foods, buffalo burgers, homemade ice cream, Mexican cuisine, Cajun style, Indian cuisine, smoothies, gourmet popsicles and many more.

The festival was a huge hit and had an enormous crowd for what seemed to be a relatively small space in town.  The event was created by the Downtown Little Rock Partnership to show people the renovations that are taking place on Main St. The food truck festival has been ranked one of the top ten best food truck festivals in the United States by the online magazine Vacationidea.

Because of the high demand of this event, the Main Street Food Trucks has announced there will be a new event called Food Truck Fridays. Three to four food trucks will be located on the corner of Main and Capitol Street every Friday through the month of October.
