MN Food Truck Fair 2013

Calhoun Square was as crowded as the State Fair this with the arrival of the second-annual MN Food Truck Fair. Twenty-nine food trucks lined Hennepin Avenue, accompanied by local craft beers and live music. PHOTOS BY ATHENA FELDSHON on June 30, 2013

This was a fuckin joke. $2 wristband and $6 beer with VERY long lines. $9 for  two small bones of Korean ribs with a scoop of white rice (and another very long line).

Who the fuck was that terrible cover band playing??

Stop hyping everything, City Pages, and give some useful info. You're a glorified shopping guide.

its a good idea but is executed with Soviet efficiency. If you tripled the amount of space it would be fun. i went to get in line for vellee and the line appeared to stretch past the next 4 food trucks. i asked one person in the line what they were waiting for and her response was "i dont know." i guess you just kind of had to get in line and hope for the best, which none of my friends were willing to do.

instead of enduring maddening lines, poor planning, and beers costing $6+$2 wristband, we walked ourselves to the brick and mortar World Street Kitchen location on lyndale where we endured no line and $3 happy hour beers.

unless the format is changed considerably, i've added the food truck fair to my "definitely not worth it" list.

So very sad! WAY WAY over crowded...PITIFUL when you see patrons eating Jimmy Johns instead!  Only was able to cut my way into line at Anchor and had some greasy fish...hope this was due to the crowds and frantic nature of cooks!  No way to keep deep fryer to temp. I seriously got stepped on...no FUN! Left after an hour rather call in sick and go downtown....please fix for next year.  Fairgrounds???

It was a terrible choice of location. I could hardly move & there were not enough places to sit if you did get food. Mostly younger crowd as it was not very friendly for older or disabled people. Why didn't they have this at a place like Powderhorn Park or Loring Park; like some of the art fairs? A place with more room. I fought my way to the end, turned around and left without buying anything, it was so miserable. I know others that did the same and just left or ate at one of the restaurants in the area.
