For those of you who are looking forward to the start of the New York State Fair, you will be happy to know that one of the Fair’s more popular traditions will be back again this year! The annual “Taste NY Food Truck Competition” will take place at Chevy Court on Saturday, September 1st, and Sunday, September 2nd. The New York State Fair will run from August 22 to September 3.
47 food trucks, including 30 from Central New York, will take part in the competition. 24 food trucks will compete on Saturday, while 23 will compete on Sunday. Using ingredients primarily derived from New York State, the vendors will craft their finest dishes which will compete for the “Judge’s Choice,” chosen by a panel of judges, and the “People’s Choice,” chosen by the fairgoers.
The event will take place each day from 10 AM to 7 PM. Fairgoers can purchase samples from each truck for $3. Sounds like it will be a “delicious” event! For a list of participating food trucks, visit https://nysfair.ny.gov/competitions/food-truck-competition/.
