This eclectic culinary event occurs every 2nd Thursday at the corner of Washington and Vernon in the recently revitalized Downtown Vernon Street Shopping District.

As Roseville continues to encourage new and exciting community events it will ensure the city maintains its reputation in the region as a destination for entertainment, shopping, and modern culture.

Roseville Embraces the Food Truck Revolution

Food trucks are California’s answer to the wildly popular street food vendors found throughout the busiest streets in Manhattan. The success of mobile food trucks was aided by social media as the forerunners of this craze started using Facebook and Twitter to announce their whereabouts. Now, food truck events have sprung up in every city in the country. The social media influence on this newly formed American tradition has helped these events build a stronger sense of community as it provides residents with an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of foods right in their neighborhood.

Unlike street fairs or farmers markets which generally involve a great deal more planning and set up, food truck events can almost appear out of nowhere. A typical street corner can quickly transform in to a festival of every type of food from vegan cuisine to gourmet grilled cheese. Some of the trucks that can be seen at Food Truck Mania include; Krush Burger, Drewski’s Hot Rod, Knucklehead Hot Dog Diner, Smoothie Patrol, and Volkswaffle.

Food Trucks are also a great way to provide catering for larger community and private events. If you’re looking to book 3 or more trucks for an upcoming event SactoMoFo can help. Food trucks can easily provide a number of meal options with significantly less hassle. “With a variety of cuisines all built in to one event, and no additional equipment to rent, our services showcase the Greater Sacramento Area food scene while easily adding gourmet value to your event,” says Paul Somerhausen, Coordinator at SactoMoFo.
