Food trucks to bring flavours of the world

Food trucks bearing international cuisines will roll into Traralgon Racecourse next month for a three-day carnival.

More than 30 vendors from Melbourne will be part of the inaugural Traralgon Food Truck Carnival, which will run from Friday, 3 November to Sunday, 5 November.

A range of entertainment, including live music, amusement rides, carnival games, kid’s activities, live horse racing and more will accompany the food.

Event organiser Danny Grant said the Traralgon Food Truck Carnival was part of a range of events to be held across Victoria over the summer period.

“We attracted 450,000 people to our carnivals last year and thought it would be an awesome event to bring back to the Gippsland region,” Mr Grant said.

“It’s a great opportunity for locals to experience a range of cuisines that aren’t normally available.”

“We are trying to build a breathtaking carnival atmosphere for people of all ages to enjoy. People can sit back and enjoy their delicious food with an ice-cold beer, jump on one of the rides or maybe watch some live horse racing on the Saturday.”

Cuisines will include Indian, Spanish, Taiwanese, Greek, Italian, Korean, Brazilian and more.

The event is free entry.
