LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (September 22, 2014) - The Downtown Little Rock Partnership will present the Main Street Food Truck Festival on Saturday, October 4.

This is the fourth annual festival, started by DLRP and the Main Street Revitalization Committee to help bring people back to Main Street, as ideas for a major renaissance on Main Street were starting to gel.

"We are excited to show this year's attendees the difference another year can make on Main Street! The 4th annual Main Street Food Truck Festival will be the best yet," said Sharon Priest, executive director of Downtown Little Rock Partnership. "If you are here for the Susan G. Komen race, which crosses Main Street at 6th in the heart of the festival, come by for the early bird breakfast 8-10 a.m. and then stay until 4 p.m. for the ultimate foodie experience."

Thirty food trucks, 11 of them new to the Festival, will join musicians, artists, crafters and other vendors on Main from 4th to 8th streets, coinciding this year with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure crossing Main Street in the early morning at 6th and around to 3rd on the return. If you're downtown for the Race, head on over for brunch! Most trucks will do early bird specials 8-10 a.m. for racegoers and fans. (Just to whet your appetite: primal biscuits covered in paleo gravy with scratch breakfast sausage, cinnamon buns a la mode, asparagus and smoke salmon eggs benedict, sausage pancake on a stick, handmade traditional Mexican tamales, breakfast tacos with chorizo and scrambled egg topped with onion, cilantro & raw cheddar with a side peach-habanero sauce, iced coffee float and much more!)

Make your purchases directly from the vendors; no tickets will be sold. The vendors will take credit cards with ease this year because of a new Wi-Fi installation on Main Street courtesy of Reed Realty Advisors, Kharma Consulting and Main Street Food Truck Festival volunteer Michael Sullivan of Cloud Media. If you'd rather use cash, Centennial Bank will be on site (at Capitol and Main) with ATM and tellers.
