Live Music and Street Food at Moscow's Food Truck Festival This Weekend

Food Truck Russia / VK

Thought food trucks only served up sad-looking hot dogs and uninspiring coffee? Sokolniki park is out to prove you wrong.

This weekend a mammoth food truck festival will take over Sokolniki park, offering Muscovites the chance to enjoy upscale street eats. From gourmet burgers to fresh falafel and tempting pittas, visitors will be treated to the best street food the city has to offer. A number of food trucks will serve speciality coffee, smoothies, juices and even cocktails — so there is no excuse not to get into the festival spirit.

Live music and a variety of children's play areas, competitions and masterclasses make this a great day out for foodies of all ages. The best part? Entrance is completely free.

Sokolniki Park. Sokolnichesky Val. Metro Sokolniki. Festival runs June 24 through June 26. 11:00 am — 10:00 p.m. parksokolniki.com.
