The food trucks return to Monmouth Park this Saturday for the first-ever “Trucktoberfest” at the Oceanport racetrack. 

          “With the tremendous success of Food Truck Wars earlier this year, we’re excited to bring them back for this first-time event,” said Bill Knauf, vice president of operations for the racetrack.  “It should prove a great combination of the traditional Oktoberfest events coupled with food trucks from across the state.” 

          The festivities will include a German beer garden, where patrons 21 and over can purchase a commemorative six-ounce glass for $5, which includes their choice of an authentic German craft beer.  Refills will be $2.50.  A Bavarian style Oompah band will be “in the haus,” and of course all fans wearing lederhosen will receive free Grandstand admission to the track. 

          Trucktoberfest gets underway at 11:30 a.m. with first race post time set for 12:50 p.m.  For more information, visit or call 732-222-5100.
