Europe’s largest food truck festival comes to Ireland
Europe’s biggest food truck festival is coming to Limerick from June 1 to 5.
The Limerick International Food Truck Festival is the first dedicated event of its kind to take place in Ireland and will be based in the heart of the Treaty city’s People’s Park on the June Bank Holiday weekend.
The event will see an explosion of international cuisine with dozens of food trucks arriving from 14 countries, to take part in the European Food Truck Association’s annual festival along with local and national traders.
Attendees will be treated to some of the most appetising, innovative, original and exotic foods imaginable – with a new twist on some old classics like pizza, pasta, fries and gourmet sandwiches along with many never before seen dishes on Irish shores.
Highlights, we’re told, will include a Belgian artisan chocolate truck, preparing some spectacular chocolate dishes from scratch, a lobster burger truck and ones serving shark and crocodile treats with even a truck specialising in insect dishes, if you’re brave enough to try, as well as tasty dishes from American, French, Mexican, BBQ trucks and much more.
Alan Woods, President of the Food Truck Association of Ireland said that “we are still pinching ourselves over this. We have got a great street food event going in Limerick but this will take us to a level that we would otherwise not have reached in years.”
“Most of all, our taste-buds will virtually explode with what’s on offer. There will be unbelievable choice, from every cuisine imaginable, but also unbelievable tastes”, Mr. Woods added.
Upwards of 40,000 visitors and more than 60 international food vendors are expected to attend.
