Jerseyfest and the Food Truck Mash-Up 2017, a celebration of the best food trucks from Jersey and Philly, entertainment, and more, will be held at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford on Saturday, June 3, from 5 to 11 p.m.  The Food Truck Mash-Up will once again pit New Jersey food trucks against Philadelphia food trucks, with the winner to be determined by a vote at the event.

Attendees can also enjoy a wide variety of beers and spirits, live music, harness racing, vendors, and activities for kids.

Voting for the crowd’s favorite food trucks will take place online from 3:30 to 9:00 p.m. Best Food Truck winners will be announced at 10:00 p.m.

“Everyone enjoyed voting for their favorite trucks between the states, so we are doing it again in 2017,” said T.H. Waldman, senior manager of events marketing, North Jersey Events, part of the USA TODAY NETWORK. “We have some new trucks joining the lineup, along with fun activities and vendors. Come hungry!”

The event’s not-for-profit partner is the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, which is in its 28th year of feeding and caring for horses.
