Food trucks and other mobile food vendors! Please join us for our 3rd annual Food Truck Festival. We are recruiting food trucks from near and far. Bring on the trucks! We are looking for trucks that will feature signature dishes from a variety of cooking styles and flavors to come together for this charity event to benefit Pensacola Habitat for Humanity. The event is free and open to the general public, although some VIP entrance and seating packages will be available for donors and sponsors. The festival will feature an eclectic mix of food truck signature dishes, live music, and a Hot Wheels Food Truck Tasting Competition.
“Pensacola Hot Wheels Festival is an amazing event that’s for a great cause! Prep heavy, make sure you have plenty of help and get ready to serve a nonstop line of foodies. There’s atmosphere, entertainment, food competitions, and much more! The event grows larger every year. It’s a great feeling to see the love and support of your community! It’s an event that makes you proud to be a part of!”
-George Makris, Hip Pocket Deli
“The Hot Wheels Food Truck Rally was one of the most professional, organized and laid back events we were apart of in 2017… Looking forward to many more years.”
-Mike Windhorst, Lone Star Kitchens 2 Go
“The Hot Wheels Food Truck Festival, hosted by Habitat, is by far the best one-day event of the year. The organization, as well as the marketing and support, are top notch. You quickly learn that over preparing for this event is necessary due to the phenomenal crowds. Not only do the food trucks max out, but the overall experience with Habitat is a pleasant one. Habitat provides excellent communication throughout, plenty of staffing, fairness in fees, and a family-oriented environment that is beneficial to all. We love our local Habitat!”
-Shawn Goad, Barbasian
