Weekly Highlights: Sacramento Food Trucks support Sac State's Homecoming and Downtown Chowdown!
What an amazing week in store for the Sacramento area! With Halloween just around the corner, fall is in full swing and it’s Homecoming season!
This week at the Diamond Plate home office, we have Post Oak BBQ and Cowtown Creamery coming out! The first two weeks have been an absolute hit, and we are on a roll, literally. The delicious food just keeps rolling up to our office ready to feed our quiet little community.
If you’re looking for something to do mid-week, the El Dorado Hills Community Services District is hosting their Oktober Fest Food Truck Festival this Wednesday 5-8pm. They will have their annual Scarecrow contest starting at 4:30pm, as well as live music and a petting zoo! It’s the perfect community event for the family looking to shake up their Wednesday!
This Saturday 11am-5:30pm, Downtown Chowdown takes over the Capitol Mall! This annual event boasts a free concert and a huge list of food trucks, 40 to be exact, to feed your every desire. Among the trucks you can look forward to seeing are Buckhorn, Teppanyaki 2 Go, Drewski’s, and Flavor Face. It is an all-ages event with interactive vendors and games. The concert features X Ambassadors, Sheila E. and Chris Janson.
Last but not least, it’s Homecoming week at Sac State! The tailgate lots open at 2pm, and the party officially kicks off at 4pm. This massive, campus wide celebration has food trucks AND a golf cart parade! The game itself starts at 6pm, and the Hornets are taking on North Dakota. You will be in attendance with some Sacramento classics like Daisy’s Desserts, the Squeeze Inn truck, and more! Grab your green and gold gear, put your stinger up and get some food truck grub to ease all your homecoming stress!
