The NYCFTA, America’s Got Talent, and all of their participating members will be using these two hash tags to share updates on their locations and the number of passes they have left to hand out each day, Tuesday (1/29) through Friday (2/1) from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.. Additionally, you can see what kind of talent to expect at auditions and share your own via pictures or video!

  • The #FrontofLine passes are free but only for food truck customers (so you must order at least one item from the truck you’re asking for the pass.)
  • One #FrontofLine pass/customer/day from any given truck. Period. (Passes are limited as each truck will only have 50 #FrontofLine passes for the duration of the effort and we want to be fair!)
  • Please note that the #FrontofLine passes do not allow you to skip to the front of the line at the food trucks- Only at the AGT auditions.

America’s Got Talent and even some of your favorite local street foodie bloggers will also be sharing your photos and messages on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and blogs so be sure you let the world know when you pick up your #FrontofLine passes and the awesome talent you’ll be wowing the judges with!
