Trailer Food Tuesdays

701 W Riverside Drive
Austin, TX 73301


Austin saw it's first major food truck festival in 2010 with the Gypsy Picnic (Tiffany Harelik and C3 Presents). With 30 trucks, live music and nearly 30,000 fans, we learned a lot about the food truck festival business and came back for a repeat in 2011.

Subsequently, Eric Silverstein (The Peached Tortilla), Dan Stacy (The Seedling Truck) and Trailer Food Diaries Cookbook author Tiffany Harelik joined forces with the Long Center in 2012 to launch Trailer Food Tuesdays, a series of food truck gatherings on the last Tuesday of the month.

In 2013, Tony Yamanaka of Food Trailers Austin replaced Dan and Food Trailer Productions LLC was formed between Tiffany, Tony and Eric. The 2013 season started in March 2013 and was held through October 2013. The following season ran from April to October 2014 and hosted between 8-10 food trucks per event on the Long Center Terrace along with live music.

Trailer Food Tuesdays continues to expand with increased attendance. The2015 season offered a larger foot print, increased food truck participation to 15-19, live music, experience vendors and a festival atmosphere.
