Ponce Food Truck Festival | Street Food Puerto Rico

Ponce Food Truck Festival Summer Edition 2022

Are you traveling to Puerto Rico?  Thinking about it?  Do you like food?  Do you like Free Entertainment?  If you answered YES to at least one (of course you did), then I have an event for you!

The city of Ponce, on the Southern coast of Puerto Rico, hosts a huge Food Truck Festival with musicians, entertainment, family activities, and of course FOOD!

Come hungry and enjoy the variety of cuisine at the Ponce Food Truck Festival.

Ponce Food Truck Festival Summer Edition 2022

In previous years, the Ponce Food Truck Festival was a monthly event. As of 2022, the food truck festival is back twice a year for Summer Edition in August and back for the winter holidays in December.

The event is held in a local park (Parque Dora Colon Clavell) in the heart of Ponce, just off of the the 52 highway.  The streets directly around the park are closed to vehicle traffic, and cars are directed to nearby parking, then just follow the music to the event.  It is well organized and safe. 


There is a wide variety of food and drinks at each event. We ordered small plates from multiple food trucks and drink tents!  

In addition to the food trucks and beverage stands, there are artisans selling handmade jewelry, clothing & textiles, home dΓ©cor, and other food items.

Previous years the Verve Clicquot Champagne air stream trailer attends with Champagne by the glass and a cozy corner to sip and people watch.

Cool off with a frozen Pina Colada!

Between food orders we watched several different entertainers of aerial acrobats, dancers, and musicians.  There are plenty of places to sit and watch the entertainment and eat the food.
