Hang out in downtown Alton at the Liberty Bank Amphitheater at the fourth annual Alton Food Truck Festival from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24.

Stephanie Tate, Alton Convention and Visitors Bureau marketing communications director, said the free festival is a great way to bring people to Alton.

“It’s a nice end of summer event and is held the weekend before Labor Day,” Tate said. “It’s a great way to bring people down to the Alton riverfront, enjoy some great food from amazing food truck vendors, enjoy the river and warm weather. It’s just a great family event.” 

The food trucks will offer an array of global street food cuisine for purchase. Try fare from 20 food trucks like poke or musubi from Buzz’s Hawaiian Grill, wood-fired pizza from Doughboys, Tot-Chos from Truck Norris and cupcakes from The Sweet Divine. The amphitheater will also offer beverage tents with soda, water and beer for purchase.

The Breakdown Shakedown will perform favorite rock ‘n’ roll hits live on the amphitheater’s stage.

“The Breakdown Shakedown are a good, high-energy Top 40 band,” Tate said. “People like to dance, and families bring their kids, and the kids can have fun dancing. We just like to have a really high-energy group there, and they’re what fits the bill.”
