It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that food trucks hold cities together. On any given day, you can see a line of them on the side of a downtown road drawing you in with the beautiful smell of cooking foods and sweet treats. Fast food trucks are an important part of everyday life no matter what part of the country you’re in.
In fact, food trucks are such a big deal that we even have food truck events to celebrate these city staples. Even though the pandemic has slowed the restaurant industry down, the food truck industry is thriving—and trust us when we say there’s going to be a lot of food on offer in 2022.
Are you thinking about starting the new year strong by being a part of one of these upcoming events? Here are just a few of the food truck festivals in 2022 that you need to check out!
