The Downtown Little Rock Partnership will present the Main Street Food Truck Festival in the fall of 2015. The festival, started by DLRP and the Main Street Revitalization Committee to help bring people back to Main Street, as ideas for a major renaissance on Main Street were starting to gel. Was it just four years ago that windows were boarded and Bennett’s and the Arkansas Repertory Theatre lonely neighbors?! My how times have changed!
Thirty food trucks, 11 of them new to the Festival, will join musicians, artists and other vendors on Main from 4th to 8th streets, coinciding this year with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure crossing Main Street in the early morning at 6th and around to 3rd on the return. If you’re downtown for the Race, come on over for brunch! Many trucks will do early bird specials 8-10 a.m. for racegoers and fans. (Just to whet your appetite: primal biscuits covered in paleo gravy with scratch breakfast sausage, cinnamon buns a la mode, asparagus and smoke salmon eggs benedict, sausage pancake on a stick, handmade traditional Mexican tamales, breakfast tacos with chorizo and scrambled egg topped with onion, cilantro & raw cheddar with a side peach-habanero sauce, iced coffee float and much more!)
