OC Foodie Fest. Good Times & Great Food

Anaheim, Calif. - On Saturday, August 28, at the Honda Center, the inaugural OC Foodie Fest took place with more than 8,500 foodies venturing to their favorite picks of 49 gourmet food trucks from Orange County and Los Angeles. The sold-out event, on top of the delicious cuisine, offered attendees shopping from Patchwork vendors, art and live painting from eVocal, live local music and entertainment, and a kids area hosted by Pretend City.
OC Foodie Fest believes in giving back to the community and that's exactly what a percentage of the proceeds did, including three local charities - Child SHARE, St. Vincent's Meals on Wheels and Pretend City. The attendance was proof enough of the great amount of funds raised for these nonprofits.

Orange County showed immense support for the gourmet food truck movement yesterday. OC Foodie Fest was meant to bring exposure to the growing market in OC as well as give the opportunity for LA trucks to branch out into a new area.

At the end of the fest, three trucks were chosen for Yelp's "Best of the Fest" Food Truck Award. Patrons were able to vote for their favorite truck. OC's The Lime Truck took first place, Chunk-n-Chip took second place and Great Balls On Tires took third place. -- OC Foodie Fest

All in all this was a great event that brought together many of the things that make California great. Watching as thousands of people from all walks of life devoured plate after plate of food created from the heart, it felt great to be standing in the middle of some well orchestrated chaos. The event staff, the trucks, and Southern Californians in general should be proud of the unity displayed at (the) OC Foodie Fest.
Job Well Done

Thanks to the great folks @ Roaming Hunger for supplying some fresh photography and everyone who attended the event, showed love to all the vendors and most importantly, who said what's up to The Supreme Plate.
