Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. is hosting a food truck rally this weekend.

The Roll’n Out Food Truck Fest will showcase more than 20 local food trucks and chefs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday at Heartside Park.

DGRI, a civic agency, said the event is the largest-ever food truck rally in Grand Rapids.

In addition to the food trucks that will line Ionia Street, south of Cherry Street, the Roll’n Out Food Truck Fest will also feature an interactive Artisan Village at the Downtown Market, with exhibits and art for sale, and culinary-themed movies in Heartside Park.

Admission to the festival is free, and trucks will offer $3 tasting options.

The event also includes pop-up performers and a food truck walk, similar to cake-walk competitions. 

Games like giant Jenga and Twister will also be on hand.
