Attention food truck fans: The popular Street Eats food truck festival returns to Scottsdale’s Salt River Fields Jan. 25 and 26 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. More than 50 food trucks–that have wheeled in from everywhere from Arizona to Montana–will be in attendance. Food truck favorites, The Grilled Cheese Truck and Tom’s Pig Rig, will actually debut new food trucks: Two Fat Guys Grilled Cheese and Grilled Addiction.
On the contest stage, those with a big appetite will go head to head–or belly to belly–in a plethora of eating contests including Twinkie-, hot dog-, pie-, sandwich- and saltine cracker-eating contests. There will also be live music from School of Rock and a kids’ zone for the littles at Street Eats.
