Signs of trucks or list with names of trucks and what they serve given the long lines to make decision where to go

apparently the food trucks were only told to prepare for 1000 people. up to 5000 people attended. food trucks ran out of food and people stood in huge long lines only to be told that food had run out. the lines were ridiculous. good thing i had bought a groupon ticket because $30 a person is ridiculous. i hope you change it before the next festival

The ticket system is flawed. No one was checking for handstamps and there were obviously more people than you sold tickets for. If you set up a perimeter restricting access to ticketed customers, I think the flow would be a LOT better. Also, consider having other activities for guests- music, a beer garden, facepainting, etc. for the kids. It would break up the lines a bit.

Need to reconsider food truck to ticket buyer ratio. The lines are too long. And food trucks run out of food well before 4! Eventually you just give up and just want to head to a restaurant where you will be guaranteed food and no more than 10 mins of waiting. Definitely not worth the original price of $30.

Just to highlight what Food Truck Festival of New England had already acknowledged in that the organization of the event was subpar. The event was marred by super long lines and poor communication. But otherwise, it is a great idea that suffered only in the fact that it was executed poorly. Thanks!

The lines were very very long. I used only a couple of tickets from my book and then left because it was taking 30 minues or more to get food from each truck.

From Our Editors

When festival founder Anne-Marie Aigner first noticed the burgeoning food-truck scenes on the West Coast and the Midwest, her prescient mind foresaw that the tide would make its way to New England. In order to cultivate the nascent movement, she founded her food-truck-festival tour to bring dozens of trucks' eclectic wares to locales outside of Boston. Already scoring mentions in Boston and Worcester Mag in its first year, the festival has featured such four-wheeled kitchens as Redbones BBQ and Roxy's Grilled Cheese. Aigner hopes to sustain the food-truck industry beyond the festival's inaugural year by attracting interest throughout the region and motivating grassroots support for the mobile culinary spots and their future descendants, sandwich-slinging helicopters.
