Head to the other side of the Mississippi River for the Alton Food Truck Festival slated for 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25, at Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater.

“Where else can you get the great St. Louis food trucks, plus the live music with the beautiful view of the river?” said Stephanie Tate, marketing communications director for Great Rivers and Routes Tourism Bureau.

The fourth annual festival features about 20 food trucks, including Seoul Taco, Essentially Fries, Steak Louie, Zia’s, Pig on a Wing, Brazil Express and Slide Piece, among others.

“There aren’t that many food truck events in Madison County, so this is a great event because all the St. Louis food trucks can come and show off, and you don’t have to fight any crowds like you would in Clayton or downtown,” Tate said.

Find a spot at a picnic table or on the lawn as you enjoy the musical stylings of regional band Paint the Earth on the amphitheater’s stage. General admission is free, but $25 VIP tickets include access to a parking lot adjacent to the venue, as well as two complimentary drink tickets, redeemable for cans of beer or cider.

VIP tickets are available online or at the Alton Visitor Center at 200 Piasa St.
