It's time for the 2nd Annual Great New Mexico Food Truck Festival, featuring more than 25 trucks offering a wide variety of delicious foods from BBQ to Mediterranean, and everything in between. Add the allure of over 25 craft beers, and you have a "don't miss" event at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum on Saturday, April 9 from noon to 6pm.
The major challenge of the day will be choosing among the many delicious offerings and deciding on your favorites. Food truck vendors include: Basil's Home Cooking; Bill's BBQ and Kettle Corn; Big Dogs BBQ; Brooke's Carryout; Calle Ocho; Castaneda's Kitchen and Catering; Europe Roaming Kitchen, Fresco New Mexico; GOTTAHAVSUM; Hot Stuff Hawaiian Shave Ice; Kimo's Hawaiian BBQ; My Sweet Basil; O'Bean's Coffee Cruiser; Texas Roadside Diner; The Lunch Box, and many more. Beer vendors include: Monks; Rio Bravo; Ska Brewing; Sam Adams and many others. A new feature of the event is the Etsy arts and crafts area featuring over 20 booths offering unique, creative items for your home-and they make great gifts!
Live music, face painting and the opportunity to enjoy delicious food, sample new brews and enjoy family time on the expansive lawn at the Balloon Museum brings thousands to this popular event. Don't miss out-get in on the fun this year!
