Food cart meetup: Tacoma’s first mobile restaurant event this Sunday at Cheney Stadium

Tacoma has food trucks and carts aplenty, but there’s no central meetup spot for trucks to gather – until now. Tacoma’s first mobile food meetup will be Sunday at Cheney Stadium. The event is free except for the cost of food. Trucks will serve everything from Southern to Filipino, from Greek to Mexican, from fried meat pies to fry bread, from ice pops to cupcakes.

Moveable Feast: Tacoma will have its first mobile food truck meetup


Barrel No. 51 is one of many trucks that will be at the inaugural Moveable Feast, July 29 at Cheney Stadium.

Until now.

On July 29, Cheney Stadium will host the first mobile truck gathering in Tacoma. Called Moveable Feast, the event is organized by Alyson Jones, director of media and events for the Tacoma Rainiers. The one-day feast has room for about 40 mobile restaurants. Read more »
