The Taste NY Food Truck Competition Expands at NYS Fair
The weather is warming up and before you know it, the Great New York State Fair will be here. Once again this year they want to “FIND YOUR GREAT.” If you think that you’re a great food truck chef, then this event is for you. Here’s the good news, it’s been expanded to two days.
It’s the Taste NY Food Truck Competition and they want to find the best entree, served by food truck chefs and made with New York State grown and produced ingredients. It’ll will take place Saturday and Sunday, September 2nd and 3rd.
Judges made up of food industry experts and enthusiasts will sample the entrees to select a Judges’ Choice winner on both Saturday and Sunday. Trucks can sell sample sized portions of their entree for $3 and you can cast one vote for the entree you like. Those votes will determine the People’s Choice winners.
Each daily winner of the Judges’ Choice and People’s Choice will receive a $750 gift card to Maines Food and Party Warehouse, while the People’s Choice runner-up will receive a portable generator on each day.
I love to eat when I go to the Fair, so this is an event that I could really sink my teeth into…get it….sink my teeth….anyway.
Registration is now underway for food truck operators who would like to take part in the competition. Go here for details and an entry form.
The Great New York State Fair runs from August 23 to September 4, 2017.
