The first Food Truck Festival in Croatia, which has been a big hit since launching, is set to start again at Zagreb’s Lake Jarun.
This year’s edition is set to be the biggest edition yet, with over 20,000 visitors expected from May 25 to June 12.
With a rich offer of good food and an even better music and entertainment, the Food Truck Festival very quickly became one of the favourite street festivals for the people of Zagreb.
Located at Lake Jarun, on the green oasis near Aquarius, it has been a favourite summer place for many to walk and socialise in the shade with a glass of beer and street food.
Food Truck Festival opens to all visitors on Thursday, May 26 at 4pm and with a traditional concert performance from Ljetno kino 8pm.
There will be free concerts from local artists, starting at 8 pm, each weekend.
