The first annual Hill Country Food Truck Festival will launch in Luckenbach, Texas on August 2. Promising a full day of food, wine and live music, the fest will take place under the shade of the Live Oaks at the Luckenbach General Store. Festival-goers will enjoy delectable food truck offerings from creative chefs, sample wine by the glass and be entertained with a lineup of Americana music acts. 

More than a dozen food trucks will be in attendance for the first annual festival. The participating trucks include Cheesy Jane’s, Clear River Pecan Company, Come and Get It Chuckwagon, Crazy Carl’s, KHILL BBQ Company, Mr. Meximum, Red Bud Roasters, Ritts Twisted Brisket, SaWeet Cupcakes, Slider Provider and SpiceSea Gourmet. 

Accompanying those trucks will be nearly a dozen Hill Country wineries offering wine by the glass or the bottle. Wineries include 4.0 Cellars, Messina Hof Hill Country, Kerrville Hills Winery, Fall Creek Vineyards, Texas Hills Vineyards, Singing Waters Vineyards, Becker Vineyards, Texas Legato Winery, Westcave Cellars Winery and William Chris Vineyards.

The Americana Music Sampler will round out the day with sounds from Milk Drive, Bonnie Bishop, Rosie Flores, Steve Poltz, Dan Dyer, Lewis & Martin, Paul Cauthen (from Sons of Fathers) and The Greencards.

Proceeds from the event will support the new Texas Center for Wine and Culinary Arts, which will be located in downtown Fredericksburg. A longtime favorite Texas tourism spot, Fredericksburg is now a fast-growing wine travel destination.

The Texas Center for Wine and Culinary Arts will be a 30,000 square foot space dedicated to the awareness, understanding and celebration of Texas food, wine and agriculture through educational programming and hands-on experiences. The project has been in the works for almost six years, and will offer the most comprehensive view of Texas food and wine available in one place in the state.
