Decade-long tradition continues: Fargo Food Truck Festival promises new delights this weekend

Fargo, North Dakota – The Fargo Food Truck Festival marks its 10th year, bringing with it an array of new competitions, food trucks, and engaging activities.

One of the attractions includes the deep-fried cookie dough offering, which boasts flavors such as chocolate chip and snickerdoodle. “We do the deep-fried cookie dough factory. We do chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, and Oreos and put some soft serve ice cream on top,” mentioned one of the vendors.

For its consecutive second year, the festival will grace the spacious Red River Valley Fairgrounds, accommodating a plethora of culinary delights. The weekend promises the presence of approximately twenty vendors, some of whom are seasoned participants, while others are making their inaugural appearance.

The festival’s organizer remarked, “This event has stemmed into other food truck festivals around the state. We’re just excited to be back at the fairgrounds for the second year, and to feed the foodies of Fargo-Moorhead.”

A distinctive feature of this festival is its dynamic lineup of food trucks, ensuring a diverse culinary experience each day. As the organizer added, “It’s crazy what food does, I mean food brings people together. We are highlighting all sorts of cuisines, ethnic, you name it, and we’re hitting quite a few bases, and it’s just fun for folks to get out. We’re kind of wrapping up summer here; it’s a good family event.”

Adding to the allure of the festival, each day will host a distinct competition themed around food. For instance, “Special treat today for sweet treat day we’re going to add some deep-fried Kukan in our cookie dough trailer. We’ve done it once in the past and people really enjoyed it. It’s something different and it’s a little tougher to do, but we do it for certain occasions.”

Designed to cater to families, the festival also offers complimentary inflatable games and parking provisions. The event will reconvene on both Saturday and Sunday, operating from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and until 6 p.m. on Sunday.

The entrance fee is priced at $3 for adults, while children aged 10 and below are granted free admission.
