Join us on Saturday, July 22 for some lakeside munchies at the second annual OnMilwaukee Food Truck Fest. Choose from a menu of 20 trucks and enjoy the live music, games and entertainment. It's the biggest gathering of the best food on four wheels.

Do you make delicious tacos? Do you have a food truck?  If so, we’d love you to join us at the biggest celebration of tacos in the area: MKE Taco Fest.

Win over the hearts of the attendees and you could also gain acclaim as the best taco truck in the city.

Taco Fest will take place at Henry Maier Festival Park, 200 N. Harbor Dr. on Saturday, Sept. 10 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

During the event, all participating trucks will sell tacos only. Trucks will be reimbursed a flat fee for every taco ticket redeemed at their truck during the event.

All trucks must hold a current mobile food license and a certificate of insurance in order to participate.

For more information or to sign up for the event, email Leslie at

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
