Food Truck Carnivale is hosting a festival in Salisbury with dozens of food trucks, live acoustic music, a fully licenced bar, and amusement park rides from April 23 to 25.
Guests of the free event can choose from ice cream, kebabs, burgers, fried chicken, hot dogs, and dozens of other food types. They can also get cocktails and mocktails from the bar or a nonalcoholic beverage truck called Don’t Mock Me. There are about 400 seats provided, and you can bring your own picnic rug as well.
“There’s food from all over the world,” says Scott Hollow, Food Truck Carnivale’s owner. “You can really eat and drink whatever you can think of.”
There will also be show bags, half a dozen amusement park rides and games, and live music, with up-and-coming artists playing mostly acoustic music through the 2.5-day festival.
Hollow started the Melbourne-based company five years ago and moved into South Australia about a year after its inception. Events in the past have included outdoor cinemas, and Food Truck Carnivale is hosting a country music festival in October.
The SA food truck events are successful, drawing around 5,000 people per day. Hollow plans to host more frequent events.
“We saw the need for it in South Australia, and they’ve definitely embraced it,” he says.
“We have seven food truck festivals planned for the next 12 months.”
The event is for all ages, and has smaller rides and inflatables available for kids.
