Bringing together Northern California’s best epicureans on wheels, SactoMoFo presents SactoMofo 3 in Downtown Sacramento. The single-day food festival that introduced the mobile food phenomenon to Sacramento brings its third and largest festival, featuring tantalizing cuisines by local food trucks and stands, as well as exceptional food trucks from one of the best culinary destinations in the country, if not the world – San Francisco.
Hosted in the historic Southside Park neighborhood, Downtown Sacramento, more than 20 of Northern California’s top chefs will converge at the popular Sunday Farmers Market under the overpass at W-X Streets, across from Southside Park. Entry rules for the drawing are located on the Stitches ‘n Dishes blog site.
A convoy of eight of San Francisco’s best food trucks including Chairman Bao, JapaCurry, Hapa SF, El Porteno, An the Go, as well as Seoul on Wheels and Bacon Bacon, voted in the Top Ten Food Trucks in San Francisco by the Chase Sapphire Visa Signature Eater’s Choice Awards will join the event, making it the largest and most diverse mobile food festival in Northern California.
Also featured at the event are Sacramento’s leading food trucks, including Mini Burger, Chando Taco’s, Wicked ‘wich, Heavenly Dog’s, Simply Southern Foods / It’s Corn Cake, Cajun Wagon, La Peidad, Volkswaffle, Smoothie Patrol, Fuzion Eatz, LLC, Swabbies, Leila’s Lumpia, Esther’s Cupcakes and Food Network’s Great Truck Race contender, Drewski’s.
“We couldn’t be more excited about this amazing event,” said Stitches ‘n Dishes Co-Founder, Christopher Ford. “The Food Truck Phenomenon has mesmerized people across the country. SactoMoFo broke the ice in Sacramento in April of this year, and the turn-out was astounding. Thousands of people attended. This event is twice the size, boasts a spectrum of specialties and the absolute cream of the crop in mobile foods will be serving.”
Uniting a plethora of diverse communities, the third Sacramento Mobile Food Festival includes gourmet traditional American, All-American, Southern Soul, American Breakfast, traditional East Coast, Mexican, Greek, Mediterranean, Philippine, Modern Organic Pilipino, Traditional Asian, Japanese, Argentinean, Korean BBQ, Vietnamese, and Asian Fusion cuisines, as well as bakeries, smoothies, coffees and teas.
