The question isn’t what you can find at Street Eats Food Truck Festival; it’s what you can’t. Over 40 food trucks converged on Salt River Fields at Talking Stick February 5th and 6th 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., serving up fruity kebabs drizzled in chocolate, colossal cups of colorful shaved ice, massive corn dogs smothered in sauce, loaded fries, wood-fired pizzas, big baskets of brisket, and $2 samples at each truck, plus out-of-the-box eats like deep-fried PB&J, elk hot dogs, and frog’s legs, all under one field. Take in the food and festivities: giant Jenga, cornhole, a kids' zone, pie-eating contests, and plenty of people-watching.
