Food trucks and foodies from across the Lone Star State are invited to the Spirit of Texas Festival, presented by H-E-B Creamy Creations, for a food fest of Texas-sized proportions! The event is being held on March 23-25 at Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater in College Station, Texas.
Victory has never tasted so sweet as 30-plus food trucks compete in the foodie face-off of your dreams – the Curbside Smackdown. With competitors coming from far and wide, trucks will put their best dishes forward to compete for $11,000 in prize money. Festivalgoers will get a chance to try the sweet and savory dishes of all contestants, including Cousins Maine Lobster. You may have heard of the Maine-born and raised cousins, Jim Tselikis and Sabin Lomac, after they took America by storm with their successful pitch to the business moguls of Shark Tank in 2012!
The foodie legends will have stiff competition from far and wide, including Over the Plate, Daiquiri Express, and fan-favorite Korean Fusion truck, Oh My Gogi! “I had been trying to track down Oh My Gogi after hearing about it from friends. When I saw the truck was coming to me, I was so excited to finally try it!” said Karyn Ho, a past festival goer and proud foodie. “I am looking forward to trying as many trucks as I can at this year’s festival. It is such a unique way to find new favorite eats and connect with other food lovers!”
On Sunday, March 25 during the Spirit Brunch, foodies can delight their taste buds by trying five offerings for $25. Tickets are now available on the festival’s website, and registration for food trucks is still open.
