‘World’s Largest Food Truck Rally’ returning to Tampa


Published:

The record-setting food truck rally that served a reported 20,000 hungry customers in Tampa last summer will take another spin at the Florida State Fairgrounds this spring.

Organizers for the “World’s Largest Food Truck Rally Part II” have set the second mass gathering of mobile eateries for March 29 and 30, expanding the event to two days.

The goal is to break the world record for most food trucks gathered in one place, set at last year’s rally with 99. This time they hope to more than double that number with 200 trucks.

The hugely popular 2013 rally exceeded organizer Jeremy Gomez’s most optimistic expectations by nearly 10,000 customers. Some trucks ran out of menu items by midafternoon, and some had to make runs to nearby grocery stores to restock as many as three times during the event.

The event will be free admission, with a fee of $6 to park at the fairgrounds. Trucks will be charging individually for food.
