If a parade of food trucks, sunshine and a day near the waves in Del Mar sound like your kind of thing- we have the perfect festival for you. The Fall Food Truck Festival will return to the Del Mar Racetrack on Saturday, Nov. 7 as part of their Bing Crosby Season for a fun-filled day of yummy eats.

The 40-plus food trucks will be taking over the Seaside Concert Area from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Most of the participating vendors will offer both full meals and small snacks, so event-goers can choose to try a little bit of everything or go all-out at their most-loved foodie-stop. Trucks will be traveling down from Orange County and Los Angeles to set up shop in Del Mar, where some of our local favorites will join them.

Attendees can expect to see The Grilled Cheese Truck, Rajin Cajun, Cousins Maine Lobster, Devilicious and The Lobsta truck on-site, to name just a few. Each dish is expected to be no more than $5-$8, making it affordable to sample through the afternoon as you please.

While you’re chowing down on all of the gourmet meals on wheels, feel free to refresh your palate with some delicious cold, craft beer in the beer garden.

Admission to the food truck area is free with racetrack admission. Tickets are $6 for non-race goers. Children under 18 are free if attending with a parent or guardian.
