2023 Texas Food Truck Showdown
Festival Details - "2023 Texas Food Truck Showdown"...
Start: Saturday, April 1, 2023 10:00AM
End: Saturday, April 1, 2023 8:00PM
In 2015, the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce introduced the very first state-wide food truck competition, The Texas Food Truck Showdown, an experience that would become one of Waco’s signature events.
The Chamber's special events team anticipated around 5,000 people to be in attendance for the inaugural event and hoped to secure 20 food trucks from around the state to compete. The first Showdown blew the team's goals out of the water, boasting an impressive 35 food trucks traveling to Waco from all over the state to compete while serving upwards of 15,000 people who attended.
After an outpouring of support from the community, the City of Waco, sponsors and food trucks alike, the Greater Waco Chamber knew The Texas Food Truck Showdown was here to stay. After a successful second, third, fourth and fifth year, The Texas Food Truck Showdown is returning to downtown Waco annually in March welcoming up to 40 food trucks from around the country and over 25,000 people each year!
Get your belly ready for some good eats, we'll see you in Heritage Square on Saturday, April 1 for The Texas Food Truck Showdown 2023!
