The Trifecta Food Truck Festival Comes to Timonium, Maryland

Who doesn’t love a good food truck festival during the summer?  Maryland State Fair Grounds in Timonium, Maryland became a hot spot for food trucks and great music this past Saturday, July 28th!  The third annual Trifecta Food Truck Festival had it all covered, and we had a great time! 

The Mid-Atlantic has had plenty of rain this month.  However, the clouds parted, the sun was shining, and everyone came out to enjoy the weather.  Of course, food trucks and great music also contributed to the great turnout!  This was the third year for the Trifecta Food Truck Festival promoted by 24-7 Entertainment and organized by its founder, Paul Manna.  The musical lineup provided a great variety for those interested in music.  For those who were there for the food?  Well, they were not disappointed! There were over 35 food trucks there to provide all sorts of flavorful dishes.  Some of the popular food varieties offered were Taco Bar, Quinn’s Ice, The Green Bowl, and Gnaw Jaw. Several beer tents were set up so there was never a long wait for a cold beverage!  In addition to the food trucks, there were over 40 local vendors there to provide shopping and entertainment opportunities! 

Music kept everyone happy while they dined and socialized with friends and families.  The Herd of Main Street kicked off the day with their Americana variety while guests filtered into the fair grounds.  Smackmaster took the stage at 2 pm to quite a crowd and rolled out funk and Motown classics that got everyone up on their feet.  Keeping the momentum, Never Never performed classic rock favorites that everyone sang along to and enjoyed.  At the peak of the day, Jah Works and Kelly Bell Band powered through energetic sets!  Then closing out the day, Steal Your Peach treated the crowd to their classic Allman Brothers and Grateful Dead tunes. 

Rodney Henry of Dangerously Delicious Pies hosted the Infield Stage and treated us with the annual pie eating contest!  The crowd watched in awe as 10 contestants plowed through a full blueberry pie, without hands!  It was definitely a sight to see!  The Trifecta Food Truck Festival is always a great time and offers something for everyone.  There is an incredible variety of food and great performers for all musical tastes!  We look forward to next year’s event and know it will be a blast!  Chris Gamber and Shantel Breen both attended the festival and took some amazing photos!
