Good news for adventurous foodies, the 10th annual Cape Cod Food Truck and Craft Beer Festival is taking place on Saturday afternoon, and there are expected to be 30 food trucks and nearly 50 craft beers, seltzer and ciders to choose from.

Organizers of the gourmet food truck festival, which has been held at East Falmouth’s Cape Cod Fairgrounds since 2012, expect at least 4,000 people to enjoy this local event, which will feature different types of food not included in the past were. The event is one of more than a dozen such food and brew fests in the New England area sponsored by Food Truck Festivals of America (FTFA).

Melynda and Dan Hernandez from Lakeville think it was worth the wait for the pulled rib meat in mac and cheese on a popular truck at last year's Cape Cod Food Truck & Craft Beer Festival in East Falmouth.

“People want to be out there trying different foods and enjoying fun family events,” says Anthony Pepe, owner and executive producer of FTFA. Last year’s Cape Festival, which reopened after a year due to COVID-19 concerns, attracted what he calls a “huge” crowd following the forced hiatus.

With about 10 additional food suppliers this year, he hopes people will “hang out and stay longer to enjoy the day,” with an added opportunity to vote online for their favorite gourmet truck.

In addition to food and drink, there is the opportunity to play lawn games such as cornhole and giant jenga, face painting and an inflatable bouncy castle for the children. Live music will be played throughout the day and there will be a craft market featuring creative artisans with stalls displaying clothing, jewellery, glassware, crafts, candles and pet treats and supplies.

Last year, then-7-year-old Avery and 4-year-old Cody Brunetti left milk chocolate-covered strawberries at the Cape Cod Food Truck & Craft Beer Festival.

From several food trucks new to the festival, look for flavors from Lebanon via the Truck Villa of Lebanon; Italian Pizza Favorites by PieSons; Empanadas from Latin America provided by Matilda; and an iconic New England menu from Cousins ​​Maine Lobster, a food truck business that began in 2012 with an on-air boost of ABC’s long-running TV show Shark Tank.

According to the festival website, all food is prepared on site and offers a wide range of flavors from around the world.
