Tickets available for annual Newport Food Truck Festival

NEWPORT - Grab your appetites, trucks full of gourmet cuisine are ready to pull into the Ocean State for the second annual Newport Food Truck Festival on Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Newport Yachting Center, 4 Commercial Wharf, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The festival, put on by Food Truck Festivals of New England, will feature more than 20 of New England's most popular food trucks serving up everything from gourmet grilled cheese to Vietnamese sandwiches, sirloin sliders, pesto pizza and lobster rolls. But save room for sweet treats - dessert trucks will be serving homemade ice cream sandwiches, whoopee pies and cupcakes.

Attendees are now invited to buy an entry wristband that entitles them to lower prices on all food at every truck, as well as a special "small bite" at each truck, which is available for purchase only with the wristband.

Wristbands are available at a discounted price of $7 online at www.foodtruckfestivalsofne.com and will be available for $10 on the day of the event, with $1 from each wristband sale benefitting the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts. Trucks will also offer non-wristband or walk-up prices at $2-$3 more per item.

Participating food trucks and menus will be announced in the coming weeks.
