The Good Life Festival: Meet the Food Trucks!

On February 9th, the Good Life Festival is presenting wine tasting, food trucks, celebrity chefs and live music. Join Food Network Stars and Celebrity Chefs Tyler Florence and Duff Goldman at the ultimate food and wine festival at Encanterra, where guests can enjoy fine wines and champagne, alongside the Valley’s best food truck fare while rocking out to the sounds of Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac tribute band, Bella Donna.

Top food trucks from around the area will be in attendance including:

    • Burgers Amore dishing up made-to-order and freshly grilled beef burgers, chicken burgers, turkey burgers, veggie burgers, salmon burgers, bison burgers and pork burgers. Family owned and operated, Burgers Amore has been serving the Phoenix Metropolitan area since 1973.

 

    • Lulu’s Italian Ice features Italian flavored ice made fresh daily with seasonal fruit, 100 percent natural fruit juices, cane sugar and the best flavorings. Smooth like ice cream, but made without dairy, the Natale family brings this unique treat from Philadelphia and New York to the Valley. Flavors include all natural lemon and mango, plus kid favorites like cotton candy, blue raspberry and cherry.

 

    • Maine Lobster Lady’s lobster shack on wheels offers diners the “Ultimate White Meat.” Responsibly harvested and sustainable, Maine Lobster is healthy, low in fat and cholesterol, high in protein and off-the-charts delicious. Order up a lobster roll “Traditional Style” with chunks of chilled lobster meat tossed with a touch of lemon aioli in a butter grilled roll, or try it warm, drizzled with melted butter.

 

    • Mister Softee has been bringing ice cream treats curbside since 1956. Mister Softee offers freshly made soft serve ice cream sundaes, soda floats, cones, cups, banana splits and shakes.
