The Lehigh Valley Food Truck Festival returns to Coca-Cola Park on Saturday, May 19.
The hugely popular event will again be divided into two sessions -- one from 12-3 p.m. and the other from 5-8 p.m. -- and is will feature close to 40 different food trucks. In addition to the wide variety of food options, the event boasts dozens of craft beer selections, mixed and frozen drinks, live music and other fun activities around Coca-Cola Park.
Tickets are now available starting at $15 for adults and $10 for children 12-and-under. VIP tickets for adults are $20 and allow one-hour-early entry into either session (11 a.m. for Session 1; 4 p.m. for Session 2). The evening session will be restricted to attendees 21 and older.
Each ticket includes access to the event, complimentary parking and a $5 food voucher that can be redeemed at any food truck.
Purchase your adult tickets now and receive a free commemorative Lehigh Valley Food Truck Festival trucker cap. A limited number of tickets are available for each session, so interested parties are encouraged to purchase in advance. Session 2 sold out well in advance of last year's event.
Should tickets remain available on May 12, the price will increase by $5 ($20 for adults, $15 for children, $25 for VIP access).
A number of family activities will be featured in Session 1, including inflatable games, unlimited access to the Lehigh Valley Children's Hospital KidsZone and appearances by IronPigs mascots. All family activities are included with the price of admission.
