If you are going to visit Oklahoma city in June, H&8th Food Truck Festival is a great place you shouldn’t miss. You can enjoy many foods, dance with locals and make memories here.
What is H&8th Food Truck Festival?
H&8th Food Truck Festival is a nonprofit event. It was founded by Laura Massenat, owner of Elemental Coffee Roasters. The first H&8th Food Truck Festival took place on August 26, 2011, with three food trucks and approximately 200 people. After three years, this event has become the largest monthly food truck festival in the U.S. It attracts up to 40,000 people each month visiting the Midtown to enjoy offerings from the top food trucks.
Laura Massenat said the mission of H&8th Food Truck Festival was to connect the neighborhood and also introduce the district to OKC in a fun way. As her expectation, this event has completed this goal, most everybody now knows where Midtown is.
Of course, the highlight of the event is the collection of food trucks. There are many kinds of foods for people to taste. People decorate each truck with colors and different theme to attract visitors.
Food trucks are not all, visitors can enjoy local beers such as COOP Ale Works, one of the top local brewers. Other suggestions are dining inside at either Elemental Coffee or Ludivine with fresh salads, hummus, and pita.
There is an outdoor stage with local bands performing throughout the night in H&8th. You can be immersed in the atmosphere and dance with locals.
H&8th Food Truck Festival is a great time for family and friends to have memories. You can hang out with friends and try all the different food trucks or can dance with families in live music.
