Food Truck and Brewery Battle

Kicking off the Salt Awards

Mix food truck fare with local brews. Add a pinch of competition. Shake it all up with some beats. Serve on a beautiful summer night.

That’s the recipe for our upcoming Food Truck and Brewery Battle, an evening of fantastic tastes, trends and fun. Attendees will be able to purchase food from more than a dozen local food trucks that have opened for business over the past 18 months along with samples from local breweries. Then, they can vote for their favorites online as the kick off to the Salt Awards, The Salt Lake Tribune’s annual celebration of emerging talent and experiences. Throughout the evening, performers and DJs will keep The Gateway hopping with tunes and giveaways.

“We’re excited to partner with Broadway Media, The Salt Lake Tribune and The Food Truck League to present this festive summer block party,” said Edie Trott, marketing director at The Gateway. “Bring your family and friends to this free, one-of-a-kind event.”

Best Friends will host its “Cat Days of Summer Adoption Event” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 90 S. Rio Grande St.

Enjoy live entertainment from DJ Poetic, DJ Dizz, DJ Erockalypze, U92 All Stars, BBoy Federation and more.
