There are not many places in the world where you can experience nearly 130 food trucks in one place, but on the weekend of June 21, Detroiters will have access to just that.
The beautiful Detroit Riverfront will be home to the World’s Largest Food Truck Rally at this year’s Detroit River Days. The three day event will feature 128 food trucks in one location with restaurants ranging from Humpty’s Dumplings, Shredderz Food Truck, Detroit Panzerotti Company, Batter Up Waffle Company and so many more.
Jeremy Gomez, who co-owns Generation Entertainment and World’s Largest Food Truck Rally with his wife Candy, wants attendees to come hungry and be prepared to experience a wide variety of terrific food.
“Come and be foodies with us and experience any type of food you can imagine,” Gomez said. “This is the only time and place where you can find this many restaurants in Detroit, it’s going to be a blast.”
World’s Largest Food Truck Rally is not just a name, it’s a fact as Generation Entertainment broke the Guinness World Record for “World’s Largest Parade of Food Trucks” back in 2014. The husband and wife duo pride themselves on not only featuring more food trucks at events than anyone else in the world, but providing the best possible food at these events. Fresh and wide-ranging to fit any diet, World’s Largest Food Truck Rally wants to expand the gourmet truck movement.
The company was in Detroit last November at a one day event that saw over 70,000 people attend. Jeremy and Candy Gomez realized how great of a food city Detroit was and when they were asked to come back for Detroit River Days, they thought it was a no brainer.
More than just a food haven, the 13th annual Detroit River Days returns to the Detroit Riverfront in West Riverfront Park for a weekend full of live music, family entertainment, sand sculptures, and so much more. The non-profit Detroit Riverfront Conservancy is in charge of the three-day festival that is expected to draw over 150,000 people over the weekend.
Besides the vast amount of food trucks on hand, one of the main draws to this year’s event is the celebration of 60 years of the Motor City’s signature sound. The event is partnering with the Motown Museum to welcome an array of renowned artists such as Smokey Robinson, Mary Jane Girls, Brandy, Brian McKnight, and Notorious. All of these concerts are included with regular admission, with VIP premier seats available for purchase here.
Admission to River Days is free on Friday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., while admission is $5 for the rest of the weekend. Every paid admission receives a $3 food truck coupon to use at the World’s Largest Food Truck Rally.
