Organized by the New Times, the Street Eats Food Truck Festival summons mobile purveyors of cuisine to the scenic 140 acres at the Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. More than 25 food trucks converge at the spring training home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies to dish out their wares and meet up for an automobile family reunion. Interactive games and live music entertain guests of all ages, and cooking demonstrations reveal kitchen secrets. Food Network star and celebrity chef Tyler Florence will host the festival, dispensing the vital culinary wisdom that led him to success on television shows such as Food 911 and How to Boil Water.
