Following on from the success of a one-off food event in Windsor last month, Downey Park Food Trucks are set to become a permanent fixture.
Last month hundreds of followers of the food truck scene turned out for the inaugural event, proving Brisbane has an insatiable appetite for the growing pop-up food phenomenon.
Downey Park Food Trucks organiser, Emma Cuell took inspiration from her visits to Melbourne’s Yarraville Gardens Food Trucks.
Ms Cuell said she was overwhelmed by the response after she’d organised the initial one-off event in February,
“Not only was I surprised by such an immediate interest from some of Brisbane’s most popular trucks, but I was blown away by the turn out considering this was our first event and we didn’t have a long lead time to promote it,” she said.
“It really shows the desire for this kind of unique food experience – and the power of social media, with some trucks enjoying a fan base of more than 2,000 followers.”
Everyone was asking when we’d be back, and I had a growing list of food trucks keen to be a part of the next one if we did it again. This was such a great way to bring friends and families in our community together for a relaxing end to the weekend, so here we are!”
Variety is the key to continuing the food truck fun, drawing on a great mix of new and returning trucks for the next event.
The first of the monthly Downey Park Food Trucks events, to be held on on Sunday March 22, will include popular trucks such ChipTease, Chocolate Komberry, Puerto Taco, Pizzantica, German Sausage Hut, Little Back, Gourmet H-Dogz, Vira Lata and Sate House.
