Truckaroo Food Truck Festival

June 16, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


Press Release
March 21, 2018


The Washington State Food Truck Association will host its annual event this June, called Truckaroo. The mission is to celebrate the uniqueness of street food, promoting the interests of small business owners and to raise funds for the association’s legislative efforts. The Washington State Food Truck Association advocates for all mobile food vendors and hopes to continue its local and state-level policy work and highlight how street food can bring communities together.

The event will take place at the Bates Technical College- South Campus. Bates offers one of the only culinary food truck education programs in the state and is run by a previous student, Chef Richard Houle. The program, which consists of 40-credits, covers everything from sanitation and food safety basics to cost control, food truck menu development and creating a business plan.

The Washington State Food Truck Association has also partnered with USO Northwest as it continues to support our military service members and their families by providing programs and services designed to meet the unique needs of today’s military. The USO operates two of its own food trucks mainly for special events that are aimed to provide support to those who need it the most.
