A food truck invitational to find the best trucks in the Commonwealth…
Ticket passes are pick up only at will call. Further instructions will be mailed to ticket pass buyers.
This sounds fun…but I have some questions.
How do I get my tickets?
Well first, they aren’t really tickets. They are wristbands. You will either get an “Over 21″ or the unmarked bands in assorted colors. YOU MUST HAVE A VALID ID AND BE OVER 21 TO RECEIVE AN “OVER 21″ WRISTBAND.
Second, you can pick up your tickets on either of the open box office days or at the will call table at Whitaker Bank Ballpark the day of the event (Oct 24). Will call will open at 2:30pm. (see “When/Where…” post below for times and locations).
What do I need to bring? Papers, receipts? Blood work?
Nope. Please don’t. Just bring a VALID ID that matches the ticket purchaser and you are all done. Be sure to check what name the card is under so you have that with you. If your name is Peggy Sue Smith and you bought the tickets with Chris Allen Smith’s card just be able to tell us that.
When? Where do I go to get my pass/wristband?
We will hold several different box office hours and a will call at the event on the day of.

I have a two-year old, a picky eater in the family do they have to pay $20 bucks?
Children 5 and under get in for $5 bucks. Those tickets will only be available the day of at the gate the day of. See picky eater note below.
Make the call based on your experience of the event and what you like to eat and do. The competitors are only making one item per truck and bringing the one they think will win them the prize. Some of the trucks will be able to make their item easily vegetarian and have even planned to make a seperate vegetarian item. Some of the trucks will have gluten-free (paleo, gelato, korean, etc.). However, making several items is not a requirement. If you have a specific diet you will likely be able to eat from 4-5 of the trucks–but honestly, most people will only be able to eat from 6-7 before they are stuffed. If you have an allergy, better safe than sorry and maybe this isn’t the best event for you.
Why can’t I just buy a child’s tickets online?
Well, we don’t want you to buy a ticket for an 8-month old cause you follow the rules. We don’t want you to buy a ticket for your two, 2-year old twins, when they can share one ticket. Our staff is better equipped to make those decisions at the gate on the day of. Picky eaters will still likely eat mac and cheese, grilled chese, bbq and all the sweets available.
Anyone intending to drink alcoholic beverages must have a VALID ID and a marked wristband –available at the gate. Service of alcohol closes at 9:00pm in keeping with ABC regulations.
So do I have to buy a ticket for my picky eater?
Children 5 and under are $5 dollars. Please make the call as to whether this is the best event for a picky eater but yes, they will have to purchase a ticket. $20 in advance/ $30 at the gate.
Clearly marked service animals are the only animals allowed inside the park, no exceptions.
Parking is free and self-guided. There are plenty of spots at Whitaker Bank.
