Eat to Defeat: Charlotte Food Fight Returns to QC this Weekend
The “fight” will pit 13 local food trucks against one another for the chance to be crowned “best dish” in three different competitions:Â Chef’s Choice, Mystery Ingredient and People’s Choice.Â A $40 ticket gets you your choice of meal per food truck as well as one “People’s Choice” vote.Â All net proceeds will benefit Relay for Life of Charlotte.
Charlotte Food Fight is the brainchild of veteran Relay for Life fundraisers, Kelly DeMario and her husband John, who organized the first Charlotte Food Fight last year.Â This year features 4 more trucks, up from the 9 that participated last year.Â There will also be live music from local artists.
This year’s contestants include:
* The Tin Kitchen* The Herban Legend *Wingzza *Gourmet Goombahs *Roaming Fork *Sal’s Roadside Eatery *Juan Taco Truck *Sticks and Cones *Chef Street Bistro *KO Food Truck
*OooWee BBQ *Southern Cake Queen *The Chrome Toaster
After last year’s cold and rainy event, returning participants will be excited to hear the forecast is calling for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 70″s.Â Participants are encouraged to bring friends and family, a few lounge chairs and most of all your appetite for a great event and even better cause.
The event runs from 3 – 7pm at the food truck lot across from Phatt Burrito in Southend and tickets can be purchased HERE.
Beverages such as water, soda and beer will be available for cash purchase but participants are also welcome to bring their own.
