Massive series of food truck events coming to Dubai

Truckers DXB returns for its third season with four huge food truck festivals


What is it about food from a truck that is just so unbelievably good?

We can’t quite put our finger on it, but for some reason getting your hands on a burger, tacos, wings or anything else that comes from a truck just tastes better.

Well then, food truck lovers of Dubai, get ready for the glorious return of the city’s first food truck event, Truckers DXB. And this season is going to be big.

Now that it’s cooler outside, the food truck bash is coming back to town, and you’ll be able to find a bunch of trucks around the city at various events. There are four events planned for Dubai, and two for Abu Dhabi this year, starting from Wednesday November 1 and running until Saturday December 23.

Participating food trucks this year include:

  • Casa Latina
  • Calle Tacos
  • Frings
  • Hotboxx
  • Kono Pizza
  • Moshi
  • Sirloin & Sons
  • Swag
  • Tandem
  • The Shebi
  • Wingsters
  • Wokinaki

“Every season, we try to bring new elements that our guests can look forward to. We’re all about creating new concepts and must-visit places that residents and visitors alike will be excited to experience. Thanks to the synergy with like-minded people, who have the same aspiration like ours and are committed to nurturing home-grown talents in the UAE, we are very excited to open season 3 with our new partners,” said Alexandre Teodoresco, founder of TruckersDXB.
