Back by popular demand since its debut in April, the Las Vegas Foodie Fest, featuring more than 40 food trucks and vendors, will return to the Silverton Casino Hotel from Friday, Nov. 2 through Sunday, Nov. 4.
Food enthusiasts will enjoy the three-day festival beginning on Friday from 4 p.m. to midnight, to continue on Saturday from noon to midnight and on Sunday from noon to 10 p.m. Foodies will enjoy the tastes of more than 40 food trucks and vendors, many of which have been featured on The Food Network and The Cooking Channel, including White Rabbit, Fukuburger, Devilicious, Jogasaki Burrito, Tasty Bunz, Baby’s Badass Burgers, Truck Norris, Fluff Ice, Vizzi Truck and The Lobster Lady, who will be traveling to the festival all the way from Maine. The festival will feature Nonna’s Kitchenette, who will debut their food truck at this year’s event, after being named a finalist of Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race,” hosted by Tyler Florence.
Admission is $8 per person for each day or $12 access for all three days with unlimited re-entry to the festival. Attendees will enjoy dozens of specialty food vendors, carnival rides, a beer garden complete with warm drinks to welcome the fall weather, eating competitions and much more. Children under 54 inches will receive complimentary admission.
Live music will be provided by Definitive Talents to span the decades to set the tone for the exciting event. With more than 20 years of experience, Definitive Talents offers a seemingly endless array of talent, ideal for showrooms, concerts, festivals, clubs, corporate and private events. Las Vegas Foodie Fest will have live entertainment each night and will begin the festival with the best of ‘70s music on Friday night; the Spazmatics, who bring their geeky charm to performing top ‘80s hits to rock the house during Saturday’s ‘80s night; and top-notch ‘90s and beyond talent to entertain guests on Sunday night, including The Peelers, a riveting cover band sensation known for their unique DJ-like mash-ups, and Krystle Cruz from the CW Network’s “Next.”
Guests may also enjoy the event in style with a VIP area that includes cocktails by Lee’s Liquor, cooking demonstrations by Executive Chef Michael Chen from Yellowtail and Robert Magsalin from Fukuburger, starting at $75 per person for all three days. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Three Square Food Bank, a local organization which strives to end hunger throughout the community.
