Mobile Food Fest coming to Main St. Little Rock

Posted By on Thu, Apr 21, 2011 at 3:54 PM

The Food Truck will be there.

Here's one of the few things we're willing to mark our calendar for six months in advance: The Mobile Food Festival is coming to Main Street Little Rock from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. October 1. The Downtown Partnership is blocking off a portion of the street, likely between 3rd and 7th, according to DLRP's Sharon Priest.

The festival will feature local food trucks, music and kids activities.

The Times, which has been a major proponent for mobile food, is a sponsor.

"We've been talking about wanting to do something on Main Street, and food trucks seem to be something that's piqued everyone's interest here and in other cities," Priest said.

Surely another inspiration? The Rep's Angel Galloway in our Big Ideas Issue suggested that Main St. let food trucks congregate there for free. The idea was called "Reinvigorate Main Street with Food Trucks."
