As the food truck trend continues to grow in Tulsa, a festival that features their wide variety of food is planned for the end of September.
Mitch Neely, owner and operator of the Grub Truck, said this week that he is working to organize a food truck festival at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum, 3624 N. 74th East Ave.
The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 29 and noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 30.
Neely is spreading the word about the festival and has already received a lot of interest.
He hopes to have music and air-and-space displays during the festival.
Neely's Grub Truck is one of several new food trucks that have opened for operation in the Tulsa area recently. He can often be found at Sixth Street and Elgin Avenue for lunch and dinner. The best way to find him is on Facebook and Twitter.
Teri Fermo - chef and owner of Bohemia, Moveable Feast Caterers - has been bringing her food truck, Jezebel, downtown about twice a week on Third Street near Boston Avenue. And Jezebel is well-known at the Cherry Street Farmers Market on Saturdays. She also posts her hours on social media.
Lola Palazzo and local author P.C. Cast opened Lola's Gypsy Caravan on May 1 on the northwest corner of 11th Street and Quincy Avenue, about a block east of the historic Meadow Gold sign on Route 66. The menu features a selection of sandwiches, soups, salads and desserts.
There are many more trucks in the Tulsa area, and others hope to be open in time for the planned festival.
