If you’ve been waiting for an event that brings some of the Valley's best food trucks together in one place, then Glendale’s Best Street Food Fest later this month is a must. The two-day festival will be held Friday, November 13,  and Saturday, November 14 at Murphy Park (5812 West Glendale Avenue) in Glendale. On Friday, the gates open at 3 p.m. and close at 8, and on Saturday, it’s an all-day affair opening at 11 a.m. and finishing around 8 p.m.

The event is free to attend; however, there is a slew of tasting ticket and voting token packages attendees can buy. These pre-sale passes allow for a customized experience and a solid bang for your buck. They range from “Just Snacking” passes ($15) that include five food samples, one drink token, and one vote token to a “Foodie pass” ($28) that gets you ten sample bites, a drink token, and a vote token. The vote token is used to help crown the truck that delivers the Best Street Food of the weekend.

The “Hungry Foodie” is a smart option for a single attendees and includes 15 sample bites, a drink token, a vote token, and an express pass. The express pass allows you to skip general food lines all day. While the Foodie and Family bundles are better suited for groups of two to four people and can either get 20 or 40 sample bites, two or four drink tokes, two or four express passes or two to four vote tokens.

If the bundling doesn’t fit your needs or you miss the pre-sale passes, you can also purchase them at the event. A single token is the equivalent of $2 dollars, and can get you a soda or bottle of water or one food sample. Sample beer, wine, or spirits will also cost one token. Domestic and well drinks will be two tokens, and premiums will be three tokens.

Vendors and food trucks will also be accepting cash and or debit card — though it's important to note tokens can be purchased only with cash.
