It can be tough to get from Palm Desert to Palm Springs, but food enthusiasts have a reason to trek the dozen or so miles to west.
The Spa Resort Casino in downtown Palm Springs will play host to nearly 70 food trucks, serving gourmet food on Saturday. These are not your so-called "roach coaches."
"This is not your typical food truck festival, this event will offer cutting-edge culinary flavors from chefs who want to take your palette on a journey you won't soon forget," PBS TV Host Cliff Young, who is organizing the inaugural event, told KPSP Local 2. "We are creating an unbelievable festival of haute cuisine you don't want to miss."
Gourmet trucks from across Southern California along with San Francisco, Las Vegas and other places will be parked downtown for the one-day event.
The Palm Springs Food Truck Festival is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Spa Resort Casino at 401 E. Amado Road. Admission for $40 VIP ticket holders is at 10 a.m., which includes access to the Birba after-party and critic's choice award ceremony.
General admission is $10 and children under 6 get in for free. Tickets are available at the event or online at www.palmspringsfoodtruckfestival.com.
So come hungry.
