Gather your friends and bring your appetite as this year's Jersey Shore Food Truck Festival will feature 45 mouth-watering trucks serving everything from fresh-made empanadas, to ocean-fresh lobster rolls, to warm and gooey Belgian Waffle sundaes.
In 2016, we enlarged our festival area to expand our festival footprint and increase space for lines and foot traffic. Due to an overwhelmingly positive response, we'll be keeping our expanded layout for this year's event.
On Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28, we will have a SPECIAL OPENING TIME of 11am to give you a little extra time to sample from our array of trucks. Be sure to get here early! On Monday, May 29, gates will open at the normal 11:30am. The festival will run until the end of live racing each day at approximately 5:30pm.
Enjoy live music all three days of the festival. On Saturday, Monmouth Park goes country with music courtesy of Rockin' Thunder 106.3FM. On Sunday, Brent & Co. will perform from 12-4pm. Monday will welcome The Rory Daniels Band to the stage.
In addition, FREE Family Fun Day activities will take place Saturday and Sunday including clowns, face painters, pony rides and a bounce house.
Our list of participating trucks and a Food Truck Festival menu will be posted here at a later date. No advanced tickets are required.
No matter if you've been to this event every year or plan to come out for the first time, there is ALWAYS something new, exciting and delicious on the menu at the Jersey Shore Food Truck Festival.
So bring your family, bring your friends, come one day or come all three. Just don't miss the most delicious summer kick-off party on the Jersey Shore - at Monmouth Park Racetrack, your best bet for summertime family fun.
