Roll'n Out Food Truck Fest: Strolling Ionia for the best restaurant on four wheels


It has been a long road to get to our city’s food truck ordinance, but now that we have cleared the way, it is time to celebrate the joys of having more options to dine in the city (even if your favorite restaurant is housed on four wheels and is on the go).

To mark this occasion, Downtown Grand Rapids, Inc. (DGRI) in partnership with our Grand Rapids Food Truck Association (and many other community partners) want to invite you to attend the Roll'n Out Food Truck Fest to taste the best of your city in one location this Sunday.

Roll'n Out Food Truck Fest showcases the diverse offerings of our community’s food trucks and chefs along Ionia Street south of Cherry Street.

Scheduled to appear this year are What The Truck, Patty Matters, The Everyday Chef and Wife, Silver Star Cafe, RIX STIX Pronto Pup, PorkFat Slim's, Pizzaiolo Wood Fired Pizza, Pig Out on the Fly, NoLo's Soul, Moochies Dream Cream, The Maine Dish, K Gourmet Bake Shoppe, Ice Box Brand Ice Cream Bars, Gettin' Fresh, Daddy Pete's BBQ, Coffee Rescue, Cheese & Company, Brown Butter Creperie & Cafe, Blue Spoon, Big Baby's Bar-B-Que, Ananda Ice, and A Moveable Feast Truck.

Scheduled to screen this Sunday are these culinary themed films: “Ratatouille” (noon), “The Princess and the Frog” (3 p.m.), and “Chef” (5 p.m.)

You can also grab a meal and stroll down Ionia Ave. to the Downtown Market where a special Artisan Village market will be held from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. on this day. 

Scheduled to appear at the Artisan Village: 

Aron Lowe, Sarah Jean Anderson, Barbara Danger, Charis Moblo, Creative Art by Mali, Debra Van Deusen, Distinctive Designs by Judi, Henry Brown Collages, Imagination Creations, Jerry Berta, Joel Howell, Kate Lewis Ceramics, Lions & Rabbits, Nora Faber Gallery, Parliament the Boutique, Randy Finch, Ryan Wyrick, Sanctuary Folk Art Gallery, Square Peg Events, Sugar Vibe, Tributary Art Gallery, and Woosah.

You will even have a chance to vote for the best food truck. The winner will be announced at 5 p.m. 

Insiders are already buzzing about the most recent win at the inaugural Friday Night Food Fight where our local food truck, The Everyday Chef and Wife, took home the Golden Food Truck Trophy this week. 

Come on down this Sunday for a taste of something refreshingly brand new and always fresh.
