The truly ridiculous part? Tickets are just $10 if you buy them in advance here, or $15 day-of. A limited number of early-bird VIP tickets will be sold for $40, allowing early admittance to the Fair Grounds (and early mitts on the food).
NOLAfoodtrucks.com and Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots will celebrate the culture of street food, food trucks, and beyond at the inaugural Street Fare Derby Presented by Budweiser on Closing Day of the track’s Summer Quarter Horse Meet, Saturday, September 24, 2011, from 12:30 to 6 p.m. The afternoon of delicious eats from the street also includes live music by New Orleans staples Kermit Ruffins & The Barbecue Swingers (3-5 p.m.) and Papa Grows Funk (12:30-2:30 p.m.).
We'll be giving away a few tickets on our Gambit schwag Twitter feed (@GambitGoods), but why take the chance? It's ten dollars.
