Food truck line up for 2024?
Posted by tamtittot

I wondered if anyone knows what the food truck line up/ options will be for the block party?

I hope there are more trucks this year.  The lines were pretty long last year.

Probably not until mid-July.  I don't think the list was official until mid July last year.

Other than Thursday early, I found the lines pretty reasonable.

Now granted, I'm more the type of person that strolls up and says "What's the shortest line?  That's what I'm having..." but generally I don't recall being much more than 4-5 deep in line.

In the past, the food truck lineup was posted on the blog 2 or 3 Fridays before the con.

Speaking of the food trucks, will they be on more than one street this year?

Sounds like the plan is to keep them where they were last year indefinitely, or at least until the construction is finished in...2028?

Liked them on Georgia street, loved them where they were last year.

Once construction is done, why not both? They have the lottery every year, my impression is there's more trucks then available slots -open up for some more!

According to a post by the Books Bourbon & Bacon truck on Facebook, there are a couple of changes to the food trucks this year: there will be only 36 trucks total, and rather than separate breakfast / lunch / dinner periods, trucks are assigned on an "all day" basis.

36 trucks total as in there’ll only be 36 trucks on a given day, or only 36 participating overall?

Found their post

'it was capped at 36 trucks/day. And only all day passes this year. Passes sold out in three minutes. A lot of trucks that typically are at GenCon weren’t able to snag the passes in time.'

So the passes just were like event tickets and food trucks just purchased them?   Thought Gencon reviewed trucks.    Shame that some of the common ones won't be there (whichever ones those are)

Edit: Reading further looks like Pierogi Love and Grumpy Gringo won't be there.   Don't remember Grumpy Gringo, but I know Pierogi Love seemed to always be there.

That’s a shame. I like both of those trucks. Sad they won’t be there.

Block Party (non trucks) is organised by Gen Con, but the trucks are done through Visit Indy who sell the passes through Eventbrite.

Actually, Pierogi Love says that it will be at Gen Con somewhere - just not in the "official" area.

Something else I stumbled across: "Gen Con has secured an exclusive and official sponsor for pizza. Therefore, no pizza trucks will be allowed, unless they are able to cover any wording with 'pizza' and offer another option (i.e., calzones)." Were there other trucks in the past that sold slices?

Same as every year. No other pizza since Hot Box sponsored.

The food trucks are always such fun.  Look forward to seeing who will be there this year.
