After three years of creating large-scale food truck festivals throughout New England, Food Truck Festivals of New England (FTFNE) has announced they’re going national. Renamed the Food Truck Festivals of America, the organization will now be coordinating food festivals throughout the U.S., including ones in South Carolina, New Mexico, and Fort Myers, Florida, during MLB’s spring training.

“It was inevitable, especially since we cannot produce festivals year round in New England due to the cold weather months,” says FTFNE executive producer Anne-Marie Aigner via a press release. “We are expanding to Food Truck Festivals of America, and in 2015, we will be chasing the sun.”

Food Truck Festivals of America will continue to produce regional festivals in 2015, including ones in Worcester, Plymouth, and Cape Cod. The organization is even putting together their first-ever vegan food truck festival, which will take place in Central Square on September 12. FTFA senior vice president Janet Prensky says they’ve had “a surprising amount of interest” from trucks eager to participate in the vegan event. In addition to vegan food trucks like Taco Party, they’ll be rounding out the lineup with food trucks creating special all-vegan menus just for that day.

Each festival, whether in or outside New England, will feature over 20 gourmet food trucks, children’s activities, live music, and a beer garden. Entry fees will be $5 for adults, with children 12 and under admitted for free.
