Officials at Citizens Business Bank Arena and Hispanic Business Alliance have announced the dates for a two-day food truck event at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario on May 5 and 6 from 12:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
“The success of the Food Truck Fests last year has resulted in the planning of not only an IE Food Truck Fest but the addition of the IE Dixie Salsa BBQ Competition – a state championship event we hope to make an annual happening” said Steve Eckerson, General Manager of Citizens Business Bank Arena.
Two separate events, one weekend for gourmet food, live music, sanctioned BBQ competitions and entertainment for the whole family.
Spotlighting the gourmet food truck movement that has exploded over the past few years, the IE Food Truck Fest is celebrating this new style of street food with a one-stop location for one day in Southern California’s Inland Empire.
The IE Food Truck Fest will showcase the delectable cuisine with a diverse mix of 40+ gourmet food trucks where the community can experience several epicurean delights all at one location.
In addition to featuring these mobile eateries, there will be business vendors, giveaways, and a kid’s fun zone featuring paint-less paintball, rock climbing, bounce houses and more.
Also held the same weekend, the first annual IE Dixie Salsa BBQ Competition, where over 30 teams will compete for cash prizes and trophies. A Certified Barbeque Judging Class will be offered prior to the competition on May 4th.
A Live Music Youth Competition will support local groups with cash prizes and community support.
In addition a car show, children’s activity zone, entertainment and more will provide a fun filled family event. Sponsored by Corporate Advocate, Radio LAZER, Minuteman Press, Novelty Printing, Elite Reward Card, Plan Ahead Events, Epiphany Marketing.
