Back by popular demand, Tuckerton’s top food truck event has returned for the third consecutive year! This year’s fest will be held on Saturday, April 30th from 11am-7pm, and on Sunday, May 1, from 11am-5pm. As in years past, attendees can expect food and fun from over a dozen food trucks from all over the East Coast, as well as craft beers and live music. New additions to our food truck lineup and activities make this two-day fest an unmissable event.

As the Seaport’s first major event of the year, this “Truck”erton is bringing back old favorites and new food trucks, as well as new exclusive VIP passes for one-hundred lucky guests. Our gourmet food trucks feature bold flavors from all over the globe, including Korean Fusion, home-made Italian specialties, Southwestern cuisine, and more! With offerings from savory to sweet, “Truck”erton has something to satisfy even the pickiest of taste buds.

Sink your teeth into mouthwatering barbeque, smoked low and slow right before your eyes, or try some of the ooey-gooey-goodness of battered and fried Wisconsin cheese curds. Wood fired pizza, bite-sized Asian dumplings, and other tasty tapas will also be available. Satiate your sweet tooth with authentic Belgian waffles and Cup Cake Wars award-winning cupcakes. A full (but growing) menu can be found on our Facebook page.

Our craft beer garden features favorites from local brewery, Pinelands Brewing Co. Plus, Laurita Winery will host two tents with wine samples and sales. New to “Truck”erton, this year’s event will also hold a giant Seaport Pong tournament!
