Loaded Up and Truckin’ Food Truck-off + Aural Pleasure Fest is BACK!

WHAT is this all about, you may ask?

Loaded Up and Truckin’ is a party, a festival, and a competition to showcase the food truck culture in WNC. Food trucks push the culinary boundaries by bringing fresh, innovative, and delicious dishes straight to the people. Food trucks are found near craft breweries, venues, trailheads and music festivals – Loaded Up and Truckin’ brings all of this to one place.

What in the heck is a “Truck Off?”

The festival brings together over twenty regional food trucks – an impossible collection of the best grub on wheels. In addition to their full menus, each truck will serve a special menu item for festival goers who purchase a ‘judges ticket’ for $65. These hella lucky peeps get the exclusive chance to cram one-of-a-kind mobile kitchen creations from every truck into their faces. Once all judge-able dishes have been tasted, the people’s court will preside over the judgment of the Truck-OFF Grand Champion. Smashbox Mobile Kitchen took home the trophy in 2016. Who will reign as Truck OFF Champion in 2017? The winning truck takes home a cool grand.

Not into passing judgement? A general admission ticket is also available for $35 so you can still git down to the tunes and purchase whatever food and beer you want with no refereeing responsibilities. Full menus from each food truck will be available for purchase and Oskar Blues will bring all the beers…all of them. Camping is available at the festival! The Oskar Blues trolley will be shuttling festival-goers to and from Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard also.
