(Food Truck Festivals of New England)
The second-annual Charles River Food Truck festival is scheduled to be held at Artesani Herter Park in Allston on Saturday, Sept. 21.
The festival will feature more than 20 food trucks from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., according to the Food Truck Festivals of New England, which hosts the event.
The food will include gourmet grilled cheese, Vietnamese sandwiches, sirloin sliders, pesto pizza and lobster rolls, along with dessert trucks serving homemade ice cream sandwiches, whoopee pies, and cupcakes, organizers said.
Festival entry wristbands entitle attendees to get lower prices on all food at every truck as well as a special “small bite” at each truck.
Wristbands are available for purchase online www.foodtruckfestivalsofne.com for $7. They will be $10 on the day of the festival.
Trucks will also offer non-wristband, or walk-up, prices at $2 to $3 more per item.
A dollar from each wristband purchase will benefit the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts.
