Jax Truckies Food Truck Championship

Experience the thrill of big-city street eats when the 2nd Annual Jax Truckies Food Truck Championship rolls into Downtown on Saturday, June 15th from 6-10 pm.
In the past year, Jacksonville’s culinary scene has evolved to include previously undiscovered, talented chefs who have embraced an efficient entryway into the entrepreneurial world by opening a diverse range of food trucks. And these aren’t your father’s food trucks! Corn dogs have been replaced by seared ahi tuna atop napa slaw, and frozen burritos have taken a backseat to the fusion of brisket tacos braised in Sicilian wine.
This championship event, held at Burrito Gallery on the corner of Main and Adams Street, features over 20 food trucks celebrating the best of Jacksonville’s food truck scene in a highly competitive, professionally judged competition to name the best food truck in Northeast Florida. Participants will also be able to vote on a People’s Choice award while enjoying the opportunity to chow down on handcrafted, artisan foods at drive-through prices.
Returning champion Andrew Ferenc from On the Fly will compete head-to-head against an impressive lineup of trucks that boast chefs trained at the likes of Commander Palace in New Orleans, to the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island, to home-grown talent perfecting made-from-scratch recipes over many years in the family kitchen.
A portion of event proceeds will benefit Second Harvest North Florida to feed hungry families throughout Northeast Florida. To learn more, follow Jax Truckies on Facebook or on Twitter using the handle @JaxTruckies.
