Midtown Food Truck Fest at Valley View Mall

16 Jul

Every third weekend of the month join Dallas food truck favorites at Valley View Center of Dallas Midtown for the Midtown Food Truck Fest! Foodies can enjoy their food inside Valley View and not have to bake under the Texas sun. This monthly food truck festival offers a range of food items from hot dogs and tacos to ice cream and cupcakes. Get a variety of flavors all in one central location when attending the Midtown Food Truck Fest which lasts three straight days every month – Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

One of the main goals of the Midtown Food Truck Festival is for Valley View Mall at Midtown to select the best North Texas food trucks (by the end of the summer) to be test kitchens inside the mall’s food court.

DFW Food trucks will be parked at Preston Road on these dates!

* August 17-19 *
* September 21-23 *
* October 19-21 *

Put your finger where you fork is, and your palette where Fair Park is, cause Taste of Dallas is back with sensational samples, flavorful dishes and charismatic culinary experts! If your tastebuds say “Yes” but your summer diet says “no” that’s no problem. You’re sure to find a healthy dish or the means to prepare your own with the many chef demonstrations taking place. Plus you would’ve walked off most of the tastes wandering the large Fair Park vicinity.

The 26th Annual Taste of Dallas returns to bring Dallas food lovers the biggest taste test of North Dallas outside of the Texas State Fair. It’s getting there with more than 60 restaurants featuring sought after delicacies and the top chefs of Dallas. From Friday, July 13th to Sunday, July 15th Taste of Dallas takes over Fair Park’s 277 acres of fair grounds to place chef demonstrations, cook book signings, a big marketplace, wine/beer tastings and live music all in one location.

Admission to Taste of Dallas is $8.00 and children get in free! Tickets are also available for $5.00 at Albertsons. TOD tastings ranges from $1-$3 each. Parking may also cost you for about $10-$12 or hop the DART Green Line.
