Dubai’s favourite family food truck event is back! As the weather
starts to get cooler, Truckers DXB is set to drive around the Emirates and serve delicious meals from about 60 food trucks in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Truckers DXB is a food truck movement bringing together homegrown food concepts which was founded in 2016 by cultural entrepreneur Alexandre Teodoresco. The Food Truck JAM is the ultimate ‘backyard party’ experience with authentic
food, house beverages, craft market, kids’ entertainment, music and live performances.
The first event takes place on the 1st November and they will run until 23rd December. The third season promises lots of new and exciting additions to the line up. In addition to a roster of homegrown food trucks serving authentic dishes at Emirates Golf Club and Abu Dhabi Golf Club, the food trucks will also be popping up in different parts of the city including Ibn Battuta and Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club. The group will also be present at Abu Dhabi Food Festival, a city-wide gastronomic feast organised by Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture.
“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 homegrown talents in the UAE, we are very excited to open season 3 with our new partners,” said Alexandre Teodoresco, cultural entrepreneur and founder of TruckersDXB.
