We are super excited for the 4th Annual VA Food Truck Battle and Beer Competition! Every year our event grows, and we have finally outgrown our previous location, so this year we will be having the battle at the Augusta Expo Center!

How the Event Works
The trucks will be sectioned off into three zones with six trucks in each. Each zone crowns a winner by the votes from the VIP’s. Each zone winner will then compete in front of a panel of judges, which is comprised of three chefs from different parts of Virginia. “The food trucks take the competition seriously. They are in it to win it,” Kim Metje, Event Coordinator said. There will be craft breweries from across the state also competing in the battle of their own. The Beer winner is determined by VIP’s and Beer Tasting Ticket holders voting. The battle is set for Sunday, Sept. 2nd, during Labor Day weekend. A large expanded children’s area with entertainment and loads of activities for the kids are on tap this year. More artisan, craft and specialty vendors will be at the festival, and variety of different bands will be playing ALL DAY!
