Good news, Gilbert. You're getting another weekly food truck event.
That means no more counting down the days until your once-a-week opportunity to get a street food fix because starting this week, you can catch some of your favorite food trucks on the east side of town on both Thursday and Friday nights.
Tonight, the brand new Gilbert Town Square Feastival (get it?) will host a soft opening event from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Gilbert Town Square. Next week, on Thursday, October 22, the event will have its official grand opening.
The exact address for the weekly event, which will feature anywhere from 10 to 20 food trucks in addition to a few other vendors, is 1012 South Gilbert Road. You'll be able to find the trucks on Gilbert Road just south of Warner Road, in the back of the center by Regal Cinemas Gilbert 14, Brunswick Bowling Alley, and BounceU.
Here's the lineup for tonight's event:
- Bang Bang Dumpling
- Bites Donuts
- Chocolade Van Brugge
- Comfort Cravings
- Flippin Rice
- Hot SOS Mexican Food
- The Grilled Cheese Truck
- My Waffle Crush

Boutique fashion truck Boutique A Gogo will also be there, along with Sugar Hi Cotton Candy, Begables All Natural Dog Treats, and other vendors.
East Valley residents can also enjoy food truck grub in downtown Gilbert on Friday nights from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the weekly Gilbert Food Truck Court. That event is held at 385 North Gilbert Road.
