East Valley residents will have yet another place to get their food truck fix starting Friday, November 27, when the new Mesa Feastival Forest hosts it grand opening event. During the holiday season, the street food court will be open from 5:30 to 9 p.m. six days a week, and after the new year, the event will scale back to once a week.
The Mesa Feastival Forest is located at the southwest corner of Pioneer Park at 526 East Main Street in Mesa and comes from AZ Feastivals, the folks who also put on other food truck events in the East Valley, including the Gilbert Food Truck Food Court, Gilbert Town Square Feastival, and Queen Creek Feastival. As at the other food truck roundups, Mesa Feastival Forest will include between 10 and 20 food trucks, as well as vendors, at each event.
This Friday will be the event's official grand opening, kicking off the Featival's six-day-per-week opening run. Friday through Thursday, December 31, the Mesa Feastival Forest will be open Monday through Saturday from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Starting January 1, the event will be held every Saturday from 5:30 to 9 p.m. year round.
The event will not take place on Christmas Day.
